Paddle Boarding in November

Warm Indian Summer days are no match for spirited Adirondackers. If the day is warm, the lake is calm, someone will be out on it. They weren’t even putting docks to bed, anchored in bays and coves around the lake. These hearty troopers were on their boards enjoying the calm lake and the blissful beauty. November days are oftentimes gray and lonely, but yesterday emerged a terrific day. A blissful reminder of summer, if only the ice cream stands were open….
