A Day with Meg and Steve, Then on to Star Lake

Our day in Lexington with Meg and Steve was a good one. We walked all through their new neighborhood with Stela in the morning. They live more downtown now, nearer to Washington and Lee University, than in their former house.  There are bungalows and old Victorian mansions. We admired the no-grass landscaping in many of the yards. We helped hang curtains, went to Cheese to You for cheese, olive oil, olives, and balsamic vinegar, and had dinner out. . . all without having to get in the car. City living rocks, even in a town of fewer than 10,000 population.

After leaving Lexington at 7:00 on Friday morning, we drove through the rest of VA, WV, MD, PA, and NY on I-81. Finally, at 4:30 in the afternoon, we exited at Fort Drum and headed into the Adirondacks. Stela was the co-pilot most of the way and sometimes was a bit too bossy about it.

We arrived in Star Lake at 6:00. Stela took her first swim. We feasted on the waterfront terrace on the bread that Steve baked for us and cheese from Meg for dinner. Iconic Star Lake rafts floated quietly by. Everyone waved. Ahhhhh! Lake time.
