Summer Daydream

SAILBOATS3

The weather has been so dreary over the weekend that we decided to take a look back to sunnier days and sort some photos from a boating trip around Henderson Harbor over the summer. How did you stay warm this weekend?

Sunny Days & Starry Nights in Sackets Harbor

 

Sackets

Now that the wedding festivities have died down and everything is back to normal in our world, we have been going through some of the summer photos we never got around to looking at. We came across the following from a beautiful day out on the water and a bunch of photos from our night shot series we had been experimenting with at the time, and thought they were too pretty not to share. We can’t wait to get back out with the camera equipment to explore new destinations!

Winding Canals

Winding Canals

Through the winding canals that reach far beyond the ponds of Upstate New York, there is a magical world filled with wildlife that reveals itself around every twist and turn. One evening last week, we boarded a small brown aluminum boat and headed into one of the canals that flow into Sandy Pond. We were almost instantly transported into a private animal sanctuary lined with tall cattails, swimming muskrats and the deep “doh doh” of bullfrogs sunning themselves in the warm brown mud. We dodged large Canada Geese, tree limbs and sunken logs to bring you the following photos. Enjoy!

One If By Air, Two If By Sea…

Beach II

After spending an entire lifetime in and around boats, when the weather begins to change I will inevitably start dreaming about boating. This year I had my first boating dream in the middle of March and almost tossed the boat in the water during the spring heat wave, but heard the word snow in the forecast and chickened out. So after what had seemed like the longest wait ever, yesterday afternoon Scott, Mr. Jackson and I headed down to spend a very lovely evening in Sandy Pond. We weren’t out long, maybe an hour, but the water was like glass and we were almost the only ones on it. We stopped over to a very sandy beach on the shore of Lake Ontario and walked the length of it as the sun sank in the sky and we dreamed about all of the fun we will have in the months ahead. We even caught a fleeting glimpse of Mike Williams (it could have been!) in the sky as we headed back toward the boat. I also made a very short video of the boat ride…If only every night could be so delightful…sigh*
