The true intention of a vacation for me is to go to that mental place of peace and serenity. Grant and I have favorite places in the country that, when you are there, the reality of life ceases to exist for a while.
Top of the list is Disney World in Florida. Now that is a happy place. We also get the peaceful feeling when we travel to Lancaster County in Pennsylvania where the Amish live. But this summer we decided to go to the Adirondack Mountains in New York. There is just something about going to the mountains to rejuvenate one self.
So what did we see? Well the Adirondacks are noted for Moose….but this was a little weird!
The Adirondacks are also noted for black bears. They are everywhere, real and fake.
Here we ate at a little outdoor BBQ. They had a live band and served plenty of lobster of all things.
We rented a pontoon boat and cruised Raquette Lake. It was just so beautiful and peaceful.
But the weirdest thing we saw….yes it is a polar bear!
We stayed in a cute little B&B and lo and behold, this guy was on the wall over our bed.
We did plenty of swimming in the clear lakes and sat and read our books. Yes, summer vacation was quite nice! I hope you too had a great summer vacation these past couple of months. If you’d like, share with me your favorite destination for peace and serenity!
