Lake Placid New York: Day 3

by Joanne on October 11, 2009

This is what I call a perfect breakfast from a warm, rustic place in town called The Dancing Bears.  It was a robust, flavorful cup of coffee with an omelet made with all my favorites.  The omelet was Eggbeaters, spinach, broccoli, tomatoes, with pepper jack cheese (they didn’t have feta which was the only negative).

Following the perfect weekend breakfast, we had some time to walk down the Main Street of Lake Placid and take some shots of the Olympic facilities.

We had to hustle up a bit to get back and meet with the club for the Olympic trial event at the ski jump facility.  We were amazed at what we saw.  From the top of the jump, a skiers view…


I tried to capture the skier coming off the jump..


The scenery was breath taking..


We also found the awards presentation area and look who tied for first!










Lake Placid is an area we will visit again.  It is beautiful.  There is some activity going on any time through out the year.  There is night life and the food is great!  It would have been a pleasure to stay an extra day, but we had a birthday boy at home and had to celebrate. Two Years Old Today!

The cake was from a puppy store we found in Lake Placed made of all organic ingredients especially for the pampered pup.  Shane also received some Zukes Beefy Doggy Treats. Those are also organic.  Ted and I don’t even eat organic!  What’s wrong with THAT?!!!

Tomorrow, although a day late, it’s CNYEats: Breaded Ravioli.  It’s REAL GOOD!

    Your breakfast looks delicious, and what a view! Today is my husband’s birthday so I got a kick out of how your little one devoured his cake too. 🙂

      Happy birthday, Shane! Looks like he had quite a good time with the cake 🙂 I love that you got him a cake, by the way. When there was a local dog bakery, I got a cake for Irving’s birthday as well lol Now that I can’t find doggy cake, he has to settle for special treats and a new toy on his “birthday” (really just the anniversary of the day I adopted him). I’m just glad to know there are others who spoil their dogs like I spoil mine!

        Lu: It took him a minute to decide if he liked the taste. The frosting was sweet (yes…I tasted it). After that..GONE!

        Liz: Shane appreciates the birthday wishes. He is SUCH a spoiled pup (he’ll be my pup even when we celebrate his 10th!).
