Cello views of Lake George
From the cabin while practicing
From the deck while pondering the end of summer
Tea Island (privately owned) is my favorite of the many small islands that adorn this pristine 32-mile-long glacial lake. I frequently row out and watch the sun rise over those mountains while my husband fishes from the boat in the inlet to the left of the island. The lake, formerly named Lac du Saint Sacrement (by early Jesuit settlers) and Horican (by native Indians), is the setting for the James Fenimore Cooper novel, The Last of the Mohicans.
