When the wind is blowing and we can't get out on the water, it's time to go daytrippin' to Vermont. First stop was at our favorite restaurant in Vergennes...3 Squares Cafe. We have no idea what most the trendy items are on the menu, but the food sure is good...and the desserts are decadent (our favorite is the Heaven On Earth bars). Sitting outside makes us feel like we are in another country (restaurant is in the background).
When our stomachs were full, it was time to hike Allen's Head Trail in Shelburne to burn off all those calories. It was still a bit muddy from all the rain, and we were glad to see that a bridge had been built across the little creek we used to have to jump across.
This is the hardest part o the trail, especially with all the 'rollers'...small rocks that roll when you step on them. Making it to the top wasn't too bad, but I really didn't want to turn around and look down. Luckily on the way back, there is a way to bypass this section. I've been known to slide down the hill on my butt, just so I don't fall.
At the pinnacle, Dave looked out over the anchorage at the end of Shelburne Bay, Lake Champlain. I would rather be photographer than go to the edge of the cliff. My family sure understands that feeling!
The weather started to deteriorate as another cold front approached (we went from 86 degrees that day wearing shorts and hiking boots, to 68 degrees the next day and back to coats). Time to head back to NY and more adventures...
