The Old Dock...

Monday I joined two friends for lunch at a local summer eatery on the shore of Lake Champlain in Essex. The weather continues to be rainy and overcast, but the conversation was sunny and warm!
The entrance is welcoming, lined with flowers and herbs.



Despite the overcast sky the breeze was not chilly...


There are moorings provided for those that wish to arrive by boat. At mid-day these were empty but evening hours finds them busy with people arriving for dinner from up and down the lake and across from Vermont.

The sign over the bar out on the deck ....

A few feet north of the restaurant is a ferry that travels back and forth between the NY and VT side of the lake.

Lunch at The Old Dock,… always a treat! Now if we could only have some sunny weather!

Awesome pics - the Lake looks gorgeous. I was really excited when the Old Dock reopened. I guess they were closed for a season the first time we went to try it after a show at the young people's theatre in the lodge, around the corner. Thanks for the pics - I'm two days away from getting back up there!

Yes, The Old Dock was closed last season,... we really missed it. I like to have an early supper there before the dinner crowd arrives. Always love the lake!
