Labor Day Week
Sept 3 - 8, 2011

This was a mini-vacation that happened after Hurricane Irene had passed.

Midnight, Aug 27 -- Charlie lowered the level of the pool and emptied the filter.  We woke in the morning to a very dirty pool and one tree branch broken and fallen over the fence into the neighbor's yard.

Sept 6 -- We visit Aleatha in Bolton Spa
The garden plantings are beautiful

Irene has been here too

The only way to clean up the sawdust

Monday (Labor Day) we met with Charlie's cousins for lunch

Cousins -- Rita, Michael, Judy and Charlie

Olive Garden on Wolfe Road, Albany. We recommend it.

We showed everyone our Anniversary book.

On Tuesday, Sept 6 we drove into the Adirondacks to visit Jamie, Ben and family at Blue Mountain Lake

It takes at least two days to visit the Adirondacks Museum

Straders lent us their house on Raquette Lake


Drove home on Thursday, lingering along the road at a lunch stop.
