Lake George Gold Cup Festival - Photos

Bolton Landing, NY


"In September of 2015 an elite gathering of race boats will take to the waters of Lake George in a nostalgic tribute to a bygone era in powerboating's classic past.  For the first time in over 80 years the shoreline in Bolton Landing will echo the roar of the exhausts from a fleet of Gold Cup replicas and vintage race boats." -

Lake George Island Camping

My grandparents started camping on the Lake George islands in 1934. This was at a time when the campsite was fully maintained by those who camped and spending an entire summer on the island was not unheard of. In fact, that's exactly what my grandparents did. From late June, until early September they would spend their entire summer out on the islands.

Fast forward to today and we managed to eke out a weekend. A reason to celebrate.

We camped with my brother and his wife who have their anniversary a day after ours and who are also expecting their first born. Our celebration agenda included eating, swimming, reading, long naps - maybe a boat ride, and then eating again. Timing is everything.

Why we don't do this more often is beyond me. The two days spent out on the island were so peaceful I can only imagine what an entire summer would do for the soul.


I-87 and some Corridor

Recently in my possession was a 24-70mm f/2.8 camera lens. So I drove down the interstate and into some of the surrounding towns to try it out.

The lens is great and I didn't expect any less. There is one problem with it that will be hard to overcome - I don't own it. At $2300 I'll have to hold off for now.

Side note: The police didn't appreciate me taking some of these pictures. They were concerned for my safety.
