Relax, Rejuvenate and Revive with a Unique Cruise Experience

Everybody knows the health benefits associated with exercise. We are all aware of the importance of a healthy diet and a good workout routine and most of us have an awareness about the essential vitamins and minerals needed to keep our bodies working at optimum levels. That said, how many of us concentrate our efforts on doing, well… nothing? Is it likely that in between working, raising a family, trying to maintain a healthy eating and exercise regime whilst running a home that we actively pay attention to the deep relaxation our bodies really need? Realistically, probably not. Maybe we are all ‘too busy’ to listen to our bodies – and maybe we are all a little bit conditioned into living life constantly ‘on the go’. The truth is that as much as exercise and good nutrition are vital for ensuring optimum health, true relaxation is an equally important element which should be included within any health regime – and this article will explore the many health benefits associated with true relaxation. Take a deep breath, loosen your shoulders and imagine you are on a Raquette Lake Cruise – then consider how you can boost your health simply by being a little indulgent with your time.

Arts Center, Winter Benefit

 

A St. Patrick’s Day celebration to remember! Magic and the luck of the Irish in abundance at Minnowbrook Conference Center in Blue Mountain Lake on Saturday, March 15 when the Adirondack Lakes Center For the Arts holds its annual Winter Benefit. Oh….and good food too!

Just look at some of the cool items auctioneer Kip Blanchard will be selling at live auction!

1. A steamboat cruise around some of the islands on Raquette Lake, or if there is a bit more time, up the Marion River or South Inlet. Enjoy cheese and crackers and wine, compliments of Raquette Lake Navigation Co.

Up South Inlet in Raquette Lake

Up to 12 people in a convoy of seven or eight steamboats the week of August 17~22. These steamboat captains rent St. Williams on Long Point during this week in August. Must happen sometime week of Aug 17-22, 2014. Captain Carl says: “I would characterize these boats as being a throwback to the glory days of steamboats as seen during the 1890’s when steam launches provided transportation to the various camps and islands of Raquette lake as well as many other Adirondack lakes. The boats are wood or coal fired and cruise at a gentle speed of five or six miles per hour. Their engines are silent as compared to their modern gasoline powered cousins and their whistles echo the spirit of days gone by.”
