Yesterday we went to town (Bolton Landing) for coffee and to use some wi-fi. In the diner where I got my coffee I asked if the hash browns had any flour. She said, much to my surprise, “No. My best friend was here yesterday, and she’s allergic to gluten. She gets sick within five minutes, and she was fine.” Bingo.
So this morning, Andy, his sister, Marcie, the girls and I all went to The Bolton Bean for breakfast. I think they were called Super Potatoes… ? I can’t remember exactly. Super something There were three to choose from and we got one of each. They were all really good. We will definitely go there again.

It was so humid up until today that the mid-80′s here felt just like the mid-90′s we’ve been having in Colorado. Today was much drier though, and the sky was clear and blue. My kind of sky We swam in the lake and I made my yogurt (sheepish grin). I also put chicken in the crock pot with an onion and some garlic, celery and basil.
The postcards of Lake George always show the lake surface as flat, and maybe it is in the winter months, I don’t know. But in the summer (maybe because of the boats) there are nice waves. The sound of the waves breaking against the rocks and crashing on the beach are some of my favorite sounds in the world. (The sound of my girls’ laughter is another favorite sound.)
