What a wonderful day!!!
My sister, Beth , and I had abeautiful day up at Mohonk, Mohonk is a nationally known vacation hotel nestled in the Schwangunk Mountains. The hotel was built in the 1800s and is huge. There is a beautiful lake and many hiking trails. It is very expensive to stay there but you can get a day pass to walk around the grounds. Beth worked there years ago for a few years. I love getting the chance to go there. It's literally 10 minutes from my house. Since it was so hot we did less hiking and more sitting on the huge front porch in rocking chairs just talking!! We were also able to take the kayaks out on the lake. It used to be that you had to be a hotel guest to use them but I guess since things are slower they will let you. It was the first time for me out on Lake Mohonk!! What a treat! It was so enjoyable just to be able to spend time with my sister. I am still amazed at the surprise that Scott was able to pull off!! It was one of my best birthdays ever and also special because I had Sierra to share it with me. Last year we were so painstakingly waiting for her LOA that we didn't think about much else.What a difference a year makes!! Thanks to all who made it soooo special!!
