I think this is the 7th Lake NY State boat launch. I stopped to get a drink of water. I can not drink and drive most of the time, with only one useful hand. It was almost dark, because of the snow clouds. I love to see white caps on the lake waves. I hope to live next to a lake or river someday. I could stare at it forever. Unless I get a subsidized retirement condo, it probably won’t happen anytime soon. I am actually committed to keep my son in the same school district until he graduates.
I have been visiting my family in the Adirondacks since they moved there in 1986. I even lived there one year, not too long ago. I have never seen a moose. I paid a surprise visit to my Mom for Mother’s Day. My sister had a cookout for us. Driving back in the early evening, I was on the lookout for animals. They always think the grass or bugs are tastier by the road I guess. They might just be looking for beer cans with a few drops left. Anyway, I saw what I thought was a horse standing by the side of the road. It had a horse face, I swear. But of course, it was a moose without any antlers or horns (not sure what they are called). I can check that off my bucket list. I will probably see them all the time now.
I only saw one deer, that was in the morning on the way up. We saw dozens of turkeys, a few at a time. I did not see any bears this time, but I have before. That was another reason to head back early.
Hopefully this will be the last night of cold weather. I did not get the space age fabric comforter out. I guess I will blame that on the reason I can not get back to sleep. I also started laundry, and will fall asleep to the soothing sound of the dryer.
