Burlington, Vermont July 1, 2013

After a good nights sleep and breakfast at the hotel, we were back
on the road at 8:30 am heading to Burlington, Vermont.

We crossed over to the US a couple of hours later on the Ogdensburg
Prescott Bridge Ferry heading towards Lake Placid on our way to
Burlington.

We had asked AAA to route us through some scenic roads on a good
portion of the trip. It was perfect. We were now driving through
the Adirondack Mountains heading towards Lake Placid. Although
it was a cloudy day, it was lovely. Neither of us had even been to
this area and thought it was beautiful.

We stopped in Lake Placid, jumped on a free tour shuttle bus that
took us all around the town, passing the Olympic Training Bldg.,
along with the Olympic Stadium. We then drove along the lake
surrounding the town. I had always wanted to see Lake Placid
and was not at all disappointed.

We were back on the road again heading towards Burlington,
a bustling college town located on the shoreline of Lake Champlain.

After arriving in Burlington two hours later we checked into a Hampton Inn. We then decided to take a walk through the town. We discovered a great area, Church Street Marketplace, a wide 4
block concourse that appears to be the social center with over
100 stores and restaurants.

We ended our walk of the city with a great dinner and a good
glass of wine and both agreeing it had been another great day.
