We woke up to 55 degree temp and rain. It had rained during the night and was still drizzling in the morning. We started the day with another trip to Urgent Care. Diana is still fighting a bladder infection. Got a new drug to try. Let's hope this is the fix.

We picked up the drugs and decided since it was cold outside we would visit The Lake Placid Olympic Museum and the Event Center in the center of downtown Lake Placid. The Event Center housed the 1980 'Miracle on Ice' hockey game. The museum gives you history of how a tiny mountain town of just a few thousand year-round residents, played host to the world—twice. 1932 and 1980 winter games. It's a remarkable story, and it's told in detail. We even took the time to sit and watch the 1980 hockey game and also visited the arena that it was played in. The center has a total of four ice surfaces (three indoor, one outdoor) for Lake Placid public skating and athlete training.

We headed home to take advantage of the cool weather and take a nap. That's enough for one day. Especially when your not feeling well.
