Lakefront Park in Cooperstown, New York in August

I love Cooperstown, New York so much that I wish we could be there every day. One look at Lakefront Park at Otsego Lake in the Village of Cooperstown on a clear, bright August day validates that warm thought all the time.The sky is big and blue, the air refreshing, the water scenic and clean, the rolling hills so beautiful and the grass greener than the best turf commercials on television. Add a bench or two to sit on and marvel at the scenery is like heaven on earth. The American flag reminds us of where we are and why the country is the land of the beautiful. The August days rarely get too hot and the nights have that cool, mountain air feel although, technically, Cooperstown is not located in the mountains. The hills are just fine, though.

Lakefront Park is the first place we go to when in the heart of the village. We usually grab a cup of coffee, chai or tea at  Stagecoach Coffee a few blocks up on Lower Pioneer Street, walk down to the lake, and enjoy the beauty of August in one of the most beautiful places you'll ever see.
