Great Lakes Day 8: Vermont
June 26, 2016
Today has been mostly a driving day. We took a short detour to Albany to see the state capital, and then drove to Burlington, Vermont. It is Celeste’s first visit to Vermont, and the first time that any of us had spent any time in Burlington. Our hotel is located downtown, close to Lake Champlain. We did a quick visit to the downtown shopping mall (which is apparently under redevelopment), and then made arrangements for a dinner cruise on Lake Champlain.
The cruise was quite pleasant; it began with an Italian buffet dinner which was held inside. After dinner, we had plenty of time to enjoy the scenery before the 8:41 pm sunset. There is no narration on this trip, but through the written materials we learned that there is a Loch Ness monster-like legend, known as “Champ“, in Lake Champlain. Unfortunately, we didn’t see him/her.
