As promised, we started Day 2 with a step onto the large balcony overlooking the back of the Sagamore Resort. This time, the sky was the bluest of blues and the sun was shining bright — we knew that had to be a good omen for what the day had in store for us.
And we were right! I was armed with my camera and snapped a bunch of pictures, including self-timer shots on our beloved balcony to start things off.
^ I feel like that’s the kind of picture we can recreate when we’re old and grey and come back to visit the Sagamore :) – maybe I think too much though. Ha
Anyway, we had a packed agenda for Day 2 and it started with making our way into the surrounding area outside the resort to see what the little town was up to.
^Caught in the act of photography ;).
The Sagamore is actually its own entire island on Lake George. We had to walk over a bridge (the same one we entered via the car when we checked in) to make our way into the surrounding neighborhood.
Can you tell I love me some flower shots? Much more coming ‘atcha in this one.
The town itself was cute and what you’d expect from a little lakeside ‘village’. There were lots of trinkets and antique shops, as well as characteristic elements to some store fronts.
Then we happened upon this beauty of a place:
One of the things we wanted to do was actually spend some time on the lake. You know, since we came to Lake George and all. What we wound up doing was renting a boat. Being that JB is on boats for a living, I knew all I had to do was sit back, relax and have him take over as captain for the hour. Who’s got it better than me?
His job was steering our way through the lake, my job was to be annoying.
Just kidding, I was just trying to document everything, gosh. :)
…Full steam ahead, and indeed, lots of pictures were taken.
^The resort view from the lake!
^Self-timer yet again. It’s a weird angle but I actually kind of like it.
Below was my “when your boyfriend is captain” shot. It felt necessary to selfie on my phone:
After our time on the lake, we headed back to the resort for food and relaxation – yet another glorious combo of life.
^JB doesn’t look too thrilled in this pic, but I can promise you we were loving life. Haha ^There were so many little birds around the resort that would fly over when you weren’t looking to sneak away some crumbs left on the table. Normally, that would sound gross and annoying but I actually liked those little guys. Maybe its further proof that this place is magical. Haha.
^We took quite a lot of elevator selfies during our trip. But for the sake of limiting obnoxiousness where possible, I’ll only include one. This was when we were heading back up to our room to change into our bathing suits and soak up some pool time before getting ready for dinner.
^Tropical drinks for the win.
After our adventure-filled day, we showered and dressed up a bit for our last full night at the resort. More shots were taken on the balcony of dreams, of course — and beyond.
Dinner was absolutely delicious and with yet another sunset view, we felt the need to take a bajillion pictures together to document the memories.
We opted for surf ‘n turf, and it was the greatest idea ever. So freakin’ good!
Day 3 was spent outside of the Sagamore after checking out of our room and seeing what else was in the area before heading back on the road home.
There are much less pictures of that, but still a bunch I will document for myself in a separate post. <3
