Day 4 - Began in the Adirondacks, Ended in Stowe, VT

On day four of our vacation, we left Watertown, NY to drive through the Adirondacks. It was absolutely beautiful. Creeks and rivers everywhere. I would really love to go back there some time to kayak.
We had planned to ride the gondola at Whiteface Mountain, but a storm had moved in and we weren't able to go. The storm and rain continued while we rode the ferry across Lake Champlain. It was still neat, just really couldn't see much!
As we left the ferry and drove into Vermont, I was open-mouthed at all of the beautiful colonial houses. I think I could live there. Well, I could live there in the summer anyway. We ended our day at the charming Golden Eagle Resort in Stowe, VT. Our room was so cute with it's screen door and wallpaper.
Tomorrow we'll travel from Stowe to Bangor, Maine. Stay tuned! ;)

Such gorgeousness all around you!!! And that room - - - I WANNA STAY THERE!

Now, for a little ferry tale - - -

My niece, Nephew-IL, and grandniece just moved to Sitka, AL. A move which required TWO ferry rides - - - one overnight and one for four hours. Bless my little GNiece's heart - - - she was TERRIFIED on those ferries and screamed and screamed!!!

Makes me so glad all MY offspring are grown and gone!!!

Oh my goodness! I need to brush up on my geography and see just where that is. I can't imagine moving anywhere that required an overnight ferry ride, plus another one for four hours.
