Above Lake Champlain

While we visited Battery Park high above Lake Champlain in Burlington, Vermont, a sailboat glided in toward the marina. I posted a photo of it back in May (while we were still in the US), but I thought I'd post a couple more.

Northern Lake Champlain, looking west toward New York's Adirondack Mountains.

Burlington was a fun stop. We stayed less than twenty-four hours, but were happy to walk around the center of town on Sunday afternoon. Our lunch was good; we had chicken caesar salads and white wine from California while sitting at an outdoor table on Church Street.

We weren't the only ones enjoying the view.

That evening, we were in a Motel 6 just north of town. The place was pretty much brand new and it was comfortable. Across the parking lot was a Burger King where we got some fries and some burgers for an in-room snack. We also had a bottle of wine. The fries were good, but the burgers were... not. We got up and out and headed south on Monday morning, just in time for rush hour.


  1. I really like Burlington, VT. It is your quintessential northern New England town. I use to visit buddies who went to college up that way years ago.

  2. At least you've got perfect weather for outdoor burning. I hope summer is on its way to France soon.

  3. oooooh, Lake Champlain :)) oooooh Adirondacks!

  4. I usually schedule my travels so I miss rush hour, but sometimes it's unavoidable.

  5. bosguy, it sure is a pretty place!

    evelyn, so do I!

    judy, oooooh!

    starman, true.


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
