Back on the same route to the Lakefront park that had boat trips, restaurants, etc. I had hoped to take the noon sailing of the Ethan Allan III but there were not enough of us. (they needed at least 15) Consoled myself with a small Maple Creamee which is soft ice cream with Maple syrup in it. Oh yum....So I went and signed in for the walk at the Hilton and carried on with the walk through Battery Park where I admired the gorgeous view. Apparently Rudyard Kipling was there back in the day and said it had one of the best sunsets he had ever seen. Too cloudy to see a good sunset these past two days...I sat and admired the view and then carried on.
Then I walked over to Shantys on the Shore and had a lobster roll for a very late lunch. It was okay - didn't have much of a taste. Oh well, not every meal can be a feast for the senses unfortunately. I was looking forward to it so much too. Got back to the dock just before 2 p.m. and the cruise was a go so off I went. Really enjoyed it - Lake Champlain is beautiful. With the Adirondacks gracing one side and the Green Mountains on the other it is quite the sight. Really enjoyed myself. Learned more about the lake but don't ask, I don't remember too much! It is up to 400 feet deep and is 120 miles long. That's it folks!!!
I then finished up the walk discovering a natural foods grocery store downtown so bought a few things including a banana, a couple of rolls and some cabot cheese...for breakfast tomorrow...My friend Donna told me I must try Cabot Cheese and I am glad I did!! Sneaked a few slices when I got back here.
|I think it's a Teddy Bears' picnic!|
My bus to Montreal tomorrow leaves at noon from the airport so off on the bus about 9:30 - have to sit down and work out my schedule. Three busses - I am crazy - and cheap!!! What can I say I hate taking taxis - or I should say hate forking out the money for taxis. Rather spend it on fun stuff and food!!!
Goodbye Vermont...I really really like you and I will come back some day.....
