Skaneateles is known for its steep cliffs and crystal-clear blue-green water. I must say, it complemented my purple boat quite well! The houses along the lake are hidden fairly well, so paddling here feels more secluded and ‘nature-y’.
The water was so clear that we could see fish swimming more than 10 feet below our boats.
It was a scorchingly hot day, so we spent a great deal of time playing around in the water. Ben helped me and Rob work on balanced braces and hand rolls. We found some flat rocks along a steep bank of the lake without houses on it, where we stopped for lunch and went for a *short* dip.
