Imagine kicking back on the large wrap around deck, Lake Champlain stretching out before you out into Potash Bay and the Adirondacks. A glass of 1987 Chateau Montelena to toast the sunset in one hand, the hand of the one you love in the other, your power and or sail boat moored just off your stony beach & boathouse. The sun about to set, the day's light ebbing, busy day fading.
