This post is about two weeks late, but I want to share about my summer travels. This was the last mini-vacation before the summer ended. Went Lake Harmony with some friends on August 23rd to 25th. There were a total of 3 cars, and my car arrived early. We ended up getting a nice dinner by the lake and chilled at the house while we waited for the rest of the group.
Here are some pictures of the place we stayed. We had issues booking a house, so ended with this meh house. It was spacious, but the house wasn’t very clean and was a bit old.
This statue was placed in front of the house:
It was nice to be surrounded by nature. It was very relaxing compared to the bustling noise level in NYC. I definitely needed the break since I’ve been working non-stop this summer.
The cute little porch with a swinging bench with heart detailing on the second floor.
This little bugger we found chilling in our area
We drove around and found this nice restaurant by the lake:
We ended that night by enjoying the nice hot tub that was stationed in our backyard, and had an intense game of Mafia.
The next day we got brunch at Piggy’s House and then went zip lining. Unfortunately I didn’t get to take any pictures because I didn’t want to risk losing my phone while zip lining. It was a very strenuous and tiring day. The place we went to is called CBK Mountain Adventures. The zip-lining place wasn’t just zip-lining, it had these insane courses/obstacles in between on tree tops. Although it was scary and a lot of hard work, it was fun.
The last day, we checked out of the house by 11am and then went to a shooting range. The place we went to is called Sunset Hill Shooting Range. It was my first time using a gun, and it was surprisingly super fun. I was very nervous about the kickbacks while shooting, so I ended up using guns with small calibers. I shot a shotgun and a rifle. I also tried trap shooting, but I don’t remember the type of gun I used. The gun was very heavy and the kickback was painful.
Unfortunately I don’t have a picture of me doing the trap shooting.
Overall I had a really nice time. I would definitely want to do this again in the future. It was a nice short getaway.
