The Sunset Ripples and Glows Orange
As I reached up to pull down the green flag that marked the calm winds of our first day of programs for the summer I couldn’t help but notice how amazing the sunset was over the Adirondaks. The lake was calm with only small ripples trailing one another slowly to the dock and the orange light of the setting sun stretching its last rays all the way across the lake as if it were only a small pond. I had to grab my camera to take a picture so I could attempt to capture the sunset before it was gone. I quickly finished up closing and headed out onto the pier. I took three quick shots and they all came out great, though still incomparable to the actual view before me. Later, I was home loading the pictures onto my computer so I could send one to my family, and I got to thinking about how great it is that I get to work down on the lake in the summer. I honestly couldn’t think of a better place to be. It provides such an amazing atmosphere for whatever kind of day you are looking to have. Whether it be exciting water sports in high winds, a relaxing paddle along the shore, or just sitting to watch the sunset at the end of a long day, the lake provides so much. I’m excited about spending time down on the lake this summer and helping others to discover and enjoy the amazing opportunities that it provides to all.
