Were back at that bittersweet bookend to summer: undocking. And it’s in especially poignant threshold this year. We pulled the docks, boatlift, and both powerboats on Friday, September 22, 2023. The last day of summer, literally and metaphorically.
At Rosslyn we… use the term [undocking] to describe the annual autumn removal of docks (and boat lift) from Lake Champlain once the boats have been hauled and we begin to prepare for the North Country winter. (Source: Undocking)
Summer. Is. Over. The end of waterskiing and surfing. The end of cocktails afloat with friends, boating to dinner, and sunshine soaked swims in the middle of Lake Champlain.
