Ten miles east of my home is Lake Champlain. Yesterday morning a good friend invited me to go out for a light breakfast and coffee. We stopped by a deli near a local marina where she and her partner keep his boat,… coffee and danish in hand, we boarded the boat and sat and munched and sipped and caught up on each other’s news. Most of the boats are much larger than their 1939 mahogany beauty. But none had the charm as his nicely restored boat.
Looking up and down the docks finds boats from Canada, Vermont, and Florida. Some are full-timers aboard their cabin cruisers. Others, like my friend, use it mostly for peaceful evenings on the lake. Sailboats were heading out for a day’s relaxation.
It was a brilliant morning at the lake ….
