When I was done exploring downtown Burlington, it was time to begin the journey to Montréal. That required driving west to New York state and then north to Canada. Burlington is situated on the eastern shore of Lake Champlain, which forms a border between Vermont and upper New York state. Three ferries offer service to NY from Burlington, so that sounded like a cool and unique way to get to where I needed to go. This map can give you an idea of where I was.
I got to the ferry dock a little early so I walked around the nearby marina while waiting to board. These ducks were making a bed out of someone's neglected boat.
Ah, what would we name our boats if not for the help of popular culture?

Here are some pictures of Lake Champlain while on the ferry. It was a beautiful day to be out there.

New York is clearly visible in the background here. I had to keep my cap off because the sea breeze (lake breeze?) was fairly strong, and I didn't feel like donating any of my stuff to the lake.

Man, I really need to be more aware of having my picture taken while I'm staring into the sun. I get the wrinkled brow and squinty eyes that just give a look that betrays consternation, maybe constipation, or perhaps even both. ;)

Getting closer to Port Kent, NY.
Arrival! Here is the ship that carried me to NY. Back to the road and onward to Montréal!
