It is Thanksgiving morning as I compose this entry. This day signifies for a lot of individuals food, family, friends, football, traditions, and the like. As I write, I have the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade in New York City entertaining me in the background. This parade is on my bucket list, but I am also grateful to be able to view it in the comforts of my own home.
This is a day for giving thanks for all of the blessings in our lives. It is also a reminder to keep this gratitude going once the turkey, ham, side dishes, desserts, football team victories, etc., are done for another year. As I reflect on my blessings today, I include Lake George and what this area has become to me and my circle of family and friends. Over the thirty plus years I have been traveling to the Adirondacks, there have been multiple changes that have taken place. Some family members have passed on, others are not able to visit due to health challenges, or schedules conflict. Now I am introducing Lake George to others, and it is so exciting to see the village through fresh eyes. No matter what the changes are, certain traditions are kept alive each time we visit LG. Mario’s Restaurant on Canada Street is the restaurant of choice for the first night on our vacations. We take cruises on the Minne Ha Ha and the Lac Du Saint Sacrament. We have stayed at the same lodging for many years, which is the Admiral Motel located right near the village. Along with the traditions, we also seek out new activities and new restaurants to add to our itineraries. This is the amazing aspect of Lake George and the surrounding areas–no matter how many trips I take here with family or friends, there is always something new to check out. This year my mother and I will be taking a New Year’s Eve Cruise on the Lac Du Saint Sacrament, and I can’t wait to blog about that experience!
Today I am grateful for this incredible travel spot and how Lake George has become home to me. I wish this for everyone who visits this special town and the Adirondack mountains. I am equally grateful to be sharing this blog and give thanks for those of you who take the time out of your day to read my posts. Happy Thanksgiving and many blessings to all!!
