End of Day 3 – Convention 2013

Short Wings Over Saratoga – 2013 SWPC Convention

Just another quick update to wrap up Day 3 of the Short Wings Over Saratoga Convention.

We just enjoyed a wonderful dinner cruise around Lake George aboard the Lac du Saint Sacrement steamboat. The weather today, though quite warm, ended up perfect for our dinner cruise.

Lake George is near Saratoga Springs and tucked in the foothills of the Adirondack mountains.We had great scenery with the mountains and beautiful houses along the shore, good food and wonderful conversations with members of our Short Wing Family. All of these things worked together  for a perfect end to Day 3 of our 2013 Convention.

Day 4, Thursday July 4th,  marks the last day of Short Wings Over Saratoga. Saratoga will be full of July 4th activities including a parade that will go right in front of our hotel, a car show in Congress Park and fireworks to end the evening. Short Wingers have a free day to enjoy the festivities and the other great things Saratoga Springs has to offer us. There’s so much to do in this town!

Just to give you an idea of what kinds of things Short Wingers are enjoying, this is what  my family did today – we went to the Saratoga Springs Visitor’s Center for some info on the town then visited the Saratoga Automobile Museum  and the National Museum of Dance – both at the Saratoga Spa State Park. We drove down Broadway to look at historic houses then drove around the Skidmore College campus. We also had lunch at a great little deli called Putnam Market , ice cream at a Ben & Jerry’s and enjoyed a walk through Congress Park. I know many Short Wingers have found a Stewart’s Ice Cream right across from our hotel and have been getting ice cream! Others have been getting out to the airport to see our small, but still wonderful, flight line.  We’ve all been finding great places to eat along Broadway, the main street in town, and I’m hearing reports of people visiting many of the sites around this beautiful city.

I wish you all could be here to join in on the fun!
