Thursday, September 22nd
We slept in today and then packed up the RV and headed out.  We left the campground and made our way for Burlington, VT so that we could check out the Lake Champlain Chocolate Factory Tour.  We got to the factory shortly after a tour started and would of had to wait for another hour for the next tour to start.  We walked up to the window though that shows the factory and we caught the end of the tour and were able to try a free sample.  It was a raspberry truffle and we didn't really like it that much.  Then we walked around the store and bought some chocolate that wasn't to expensive.  We also got to try some samples that were sitting by the register.  They were delicious. 

When we finished up at Lake Champlain Chocolates we headed out in to the rain to get back to the RV.  Our plan was to head right to Magic Hat, but their brewery tours didn't start until 2pm and that would mean we had about 2 hours to kill so we decided to stop in at the movie theater and watch The Help.  We both enjoyed the movie and ate our chocolate we bought during the movie.

After the movies we headed to Magic Hat.  We ended up getting there at about 3:15 so we had to wait until the 4pm tour.  While we were waiting we did our tastings and decided that we would buy a growler of #9 before we left.  The growler only cost about $9 so it was a good deal.  When we went on the tour the tour guide asked what are the 4 ingredients for beer besides flavors that are added.  I answered and won a pint glass.  They are malts, hops, yeast and water. YAY!!  After we finished up the tour we purchased our growler, got my free pint glass and made some other purchases before heading out. 

When we finished up at Magic Hat we headed out to find a campground for the night.
