Yay! We finally made it out on the water...not in it (water temp was 57 degrees), but at least we were on it in Moxie. This time of year is still so quiet and we barely saw any other boats at all. Come the 4th of July, this will will all change until Labor Day, when we can take back the lake. For now we'll advantage of the serenity.
In our travels, we found a few new large camps being built. We also saw these turtles basking in the sun on the rocks and we idled by them quietly so they weren't disturbed. We all needed a bit of sun after the wet, cold spring.
We came upon this weather/data station moored off of Anthony's Nose, across from Roger's Rock. We have seen them in the southern end of the lake, but this is the first year one has been stationed in the north end. It is all part of the Jefferson Project which monitors the conditions of the lake, all to help keep the water the most pristine in the country.
What a perfect day to rediscover Lake George. After all the rain, we had a clear blue sky and no wind. "Serenity now, insanity later!"
