I love my Adirondack’s! On August 11th our family made a short overnight journey to Lake George for some kayaking and to visit Fort Ticonderoga. Weather was spectacular with low humidity, sunshine and temps only near eighty degrees. We launched from the boathouse of Lake George Kayak Company http://www.lakegeorgekayak.com in Bolton Landing. Here we rented Max a kayak for his first solo voyage. Max rocked it and most importantly loved it. Now we have purchased him his own kayak.

Lake George was abundant with boat traffic and the wakes at points were taking power boats right out of the water. It was both exciting and a bit nerve racking at the same time. Surprisingly enough all four of us barely had any water in our boats.

On the 12th we drove north to Fort Ticonderoga. I haven’t been there since I was a kid and my wife and sons had never been there. So it would be a new experience for us all. Fort Ti is pretty awesome and the tour is well informed. We were treated to a live musket fire demonstration. Was hoping for some cannon fire myself but the musket’s were cool.
