Off on a new adventure!

We are taking a cruise across the north Atlantic, 
visiting Iceland, Greenland and the eastern seaboard of Canada & the USA.
But first, we fly to Amsterdam!

 What a beautiful city!  
Lots of pretty canals.
And LOTS of bikes!

Some pretty unique ones too!

Not sure what elephants are doing in Amsterdam, but at least she's wearing the native costume!

And when on the Netherlands, you must try a Dutch pancake.
They're as big as the plate and delicious!
Now off to the ship....

I found tadpoles in one of the horse troughs.
I gave them some fish food and put a big stick in there so they can climb out when they have metamorphosed into frogs or toads.

This guy has legs!
(That's fish food floating on the water)

Great Camps of the Adirondacks

While staying at Camp Sagamore, we were fortunate to tour two other great camps.

 Camp Uncas,  once owned by J.P. Morgan, is now privately owned.
However since we were staying at Sagamore and hosted by road Scholar
we were granted access to Camp Uncas.

The Dining hall at Uncas.

 The boathouse

The main Lodge.
A peaceful lake view at Camp Uncas.

The final camp we explored was Camp Pine Knot on Raquette Lake.
Pine Knot was the first of the camps built and the origin of "great camp" architecture.

 The porch of the play house.

The dining hall.
 The sleeping chalet at Camp Pine Knot.

We had a great time in the Adirondacks!
