Take that Dip: Lake George.

Moments after my replenishing swim.

 Meet Ed.

I couldn’t leave Lake George without taking a dip.  I caught a ride with Ed, a local cruise ship captain, whom dropped me off a few miles up the road in Bolton Landing.  He points his knuckle towards the beach and recommends a dip.  I got a late start as it is already past 2pm, but I can’t pass up the opportunity.

I might be a Polar Bear.

It wasn’t that cold, not Polar Bear-ish, but I was the only one there save an older gentleman tanning.  I didn’t hang to long after the dip.  But I think I might try to hit a Polar Bear Club sometime this winter.  I have been relishing the rush of being emerged in cold water.

A Pastrami-loving Polar Bear, that is.

Pastrami is becoming my new favorite sandwich.  I downed a Pastrami sandwich on marble rye and walked out of town.  It was 28 miles to Ticonderoga and it has been tough getting rides.

If you are a member of the Polar Bear Club, please contact me.
