Needed break

     Last week was our annual family vacation in the Adirondack mountains, probably my most favorite place. Our entire family rents a house for 10 near Old Forge, NY and enjoys the gorgeous landscape. This year, it was a great break from the coronavirus trap. 
     I took my sewing machine and set it up in a corner, but only got to make masks. I should have set in up on the deck overlooking a lake, but I think the rain would have done it in. We were fortunate to have just one day of heavy rain from the hurricane and none of its winds.
First Lake
     It was so cool and wonderful there. Nights where you had to use a blanket and snuggle.

Looks like a beautiful spot! I'm glad the hurricane didn't have a big impact.
Love those big big pines.

Mother Nature provides some of the best scenery -- we've taken a few drives to the nearby state park just to spend some time under the massive trees on narrow winding roads with no one else in sight. Glad you and your family got away for a bit.
