Missing The Adirondacks -- Friday Fotos (September 6, 2013)

Now that we have left Labor Day 2013 and the symbolic end of summer behind us, we find ourselves with only 15 days remaining until the end of astronomical summer (it ends in the Northern Hemisphere on Saturday, September 21st).  

As always at this time of year, I find myself anticipating with pleasure the change of seasons, but I already miss summer in the Adirondacks -- and so today's Friday Fotos is a fond farewell in photographs (until next year) to the Adirondack summer that means so much to our family!

  1. Hi John,

    What gorgeous photos! It looks like a beautiful place.

    Thank you for trying to help me figure out Carl Martin's birth record. How kind of you! It turns out that Linda, author of the Cousin Linda blog, has been able to provide me with a translation. She has two blogs, a Swedish and English version. She also emailed me a copy of Carl Martin's death record from the Swedish website Arkivdigital, as well as a house examine/parish book which lists the family.

    I wanted to let you know about this development so you didn't spend time trying to decipher the birth record when it's already been deciphered.

    Thank you again for your kind help in trying to solve the mystery of Carl Martin's birth record! I anticipate a blog post to announce Carl's cause of death.

    Thanks again!


  2. I agree with Jana - those are amazing photos, John! I especially like the photo of the mergansers; they kind of look like a row of voyageurs paddling their canoes.

  3. John, All are perfect, pretty difficult to pick a favorite. However, I simply love your first one, right place at the right time...everything is perfect. Do you go there every year?
