Wonderful day at Shelburne Farms. Entry to come later, but photos are up.
... disappearing in the distance on our left. The bridge connects the NY and VT sides of Lake Champlain and Crown Point Fort ruins, museum, state park and Champlain Lighthouse are on the end of the NY side of this new bridge. We rode our bikes from the Champlain Bridge Marina which is located on the VT side and did a self guided tour. Everything is fairly quiet here so we enjoyed the freedom to move from place to place. ...
... We came down and had a look in the museum before hitting the road. We finally had to fill up the car - we'd done 350 miles since we started. That was interesting - you pay before you fill up. It seems today that everyone we've spoken to hasn't understood what we've said and we've had to repeat things several times - they obviously aren't used to someone talking properly to them! We drove into Vermont past some spectacular mountainous scenery and onto the ...
... Lake Monsters lost to the Scrappers. Alex was happy, because he was the only person in the crowd rooting for the Scrappers. After the game, the stadium allowed any child who wanted to the chance to run the professional-spaced bases, which Alex did. When he finished, he had a great big smile on his face.
We walked back to the hotel in the dark humid night, chatting about our trip and all the fun we'd had - a great end to a long day.
Mallett's Bay is located on the 40 mile Island Line Trail. We biked about 12 miles of this beautiful, well maintained trail that includes waterfront and parks which connects Burlington to South Hero Island.

We ended up changing our plans so we needed one night in Vermont before taking the ferry to NY. We got the last room available at this motel, and it was about $100 for the night. We walked in the room and right away we noticed dirty wall, dirty chair and the next morning a dirty shower. So we made it through-but this place is disgusting and unless there are new owners pay extra to say in a better place. We were surprised because everyplace-every gas station, deli, restaurant in Vermont has taken such pride in their place and their work we cam to trust the Vermont in Vermont too much.
