In another first, I finally made it to Dow’s Lake for the first time on the weekend. While I didn’t stay for long and walk around as much as I would have liked due to the approaching storm, I now understand why most people love to come up here and just to hang out. Also, after seing it for the first time in summer, I look forward to seeing how different it is in the winter when the canal is open for skating (if it ever does). I’ll warn you now, I have not skated on the Canal either, at least not since I was 14 years old! So expect that posting to start with “In another first” too.
