|My dog is a big fan of the Adirondack Spring!|
Spring is my favorite time of year in the Adirondacks, even more so than summer. There’s just something about Spring that makes me smitten.
Businesses, whose doors were shut all winter start unlocking, boats start to come out of dry dock, tourists start trickling back into town and the gates blocking Veterans Memorial Highway, the road that leads up to the top of Prospect Mountain, open.
It’s like an awakening — a new beginning. What happened last year, or season as we in the Adirondacks like to say, doesn’t matter. It’s this year we have to plan for — a year with new memories just waiting to be created.
Spring brings the chance to start planning this year’s garden with the anticipation of creating home-cooked meals with friends enjoyed around the picnic table with a refreshing glass of Adirondack Winery wine on a warm day.
It means finding new places to take my dog kayaking, that Girlfriends Getaway in Bolton Landing is almost here and spending Sunday mornings sipping hot coffee from Cafe Vero while sitting on green Adirondack chairs in Shepard’s Park.
What do you love about Spring where you live?
