More evidence of 'Global Warming'.
Todays Autumn Colours tour was temorarily disbanded because of rain and snow. Unseasonal here just as it was when we were in Tokyo in April and even in Melbourne as we speak...
Believe the nonsense if you like.
Anyway, it was another interesting day for us - and a lot of fun. We are now comfortably in our room at Lake Placid. A stopover at Fort Ticonderoga was fascinating albeit cut short meterologically. This is where the French took on the Brits and won temporarily in a rout apparently.
We didnt see as much as we might have but it was good. We were meant to do a cruise on Lake Placid and a tour up the Olympic ski-jump tower but it was all cancelled and instead we drove around and got as close as we could.
Arriving 2 hours before check-in we were left to our own devices despite the sleet outside.
Chris and I found a great Pizza place where a 16"pizza was $18 and magnificent and the Chardy and Bud were both well priced also. All while watching the largest snow flakes we have ever seen fill
the streets of this town.
Our planned hike around the lake is scrapped but it is beautifully different. Needed to be careful on the way back to the bus with a skinful.
Light dinner tonight tho.......
Anyway, some pics and bye for now
- still thoroughly enjoying ourselves
