Not quite as cool this morning and there was no wind when we left.  We had a short run today to get to Burlington, VT.

The marina seemed to be asleep when we left with not a lot of activity going on.  A couple of runabouts were active but that was it.

The water was flat as you can see in the photos.  Early this morning there was some fog and most of it had burned off.  You can see the humidity in the air in several of the photos.  They are not forecasting any rain until possibly tomorrow.

There were some fishermen out this morning and they were trolling in the deep water off the east shore.  We did need to dodge a few of the trolling boats, but not many.

We arrived at the Ferry Dock Marina in Burlington before noon.  We topped off the fuel tanks to try and avoid having to buy fuel in Canada when we travel from the Chambly Canal to the 1000 Islands in New York. One of the report put a liter of Canadian diesel at about $1.60 which is around $6.00 per gallon in US equivalent.

After we were tied up Errante came into the marina for a couple of hours. We traveled with them yesterday from Whitehall to just short of Pointe Bay Marina. They are from Connecticut and are on the Loop. They asked us a few questions and we gave them our opinions. They are headed to another marina on the west shore to leave the boat for 9 days while they go home for birthdays and graduations. We probably will not see them again on their Loop. They are going to Ottawa and up the Trent-Severn to the Georgian Bay.  Our plans for the final leg home are still in the air on whether we go Lake Erie or the Trent-Severn.

Burlington is a very busy port with car ferries and passenger ferries.  The marina we stayed at does not have finger docks and use a modified Med Style tie-off. They put us out on a dock in front of their restaurant, Breakwaters, where they do have finger docks for the customers coming in for dinner. It is more of a bar food and sandwiches type restaurant and they had an awful lot of people for a Tuesday night.

On to Rouse Pointe tomorrow, at the top of Lake Champlain.
