Lake Champlain. . . . . . .


Last night we took an unplanned ferry ride across 
Lake Champlain from Vermont to Plattsburgh, New York.

Old style lakefront vacation lodgings - still very attractive when kept up so well.

Returning to Vermont today we drove down through the sunlit 
lake islands to Burlington, arriving back in Manchester, 
New Hampshire - our starting point last Tuesday. 
Our unplanned road trip turn into a lovely vacation - 
the countryside and coastal regions were all so scenic, 
the kindness of the near perfect late Summer weather was 
a most generous extra.

  3. I recall crossing Lake Champlain years ago when our sons were young. I seem to remember visiting the Ausable Chasm before crossing in our hired car and then eating at the Ice House restaurant, Burlington, when we reached the Vermont side.

  4. Lovely pictures Mary, I have enjoyed your trip with you.

    We went to Manchester NH when we were in the US in 1998.

  5. It is exactly ten years since we celebrated our Silver Wedding Anniversary - with a lunchtime cruise on Lake Champlain - followed by a seafood dinner in a riverside restaurant - then a drive in the moonlight. Thank you for your lovely post, with super pictures which brought back so many happy memories!

  8. How I want to be sitting in one of those red chairs having a wonderful chat with my friend, Mary.
    And then a cozy night to sleep in one of those cabins. Oh sigh! Just beautiful on the lake.
    Surprise travel, oh so beautiful! Glad the weather was also agreeable.
