Saturday morning dawned to snow covered trees. Not a heavy snowfall, but enough to "frost" everything. A few big flakes were still falling when we pulled out of the driveway heading to Burlington, VT to drop a load of things off at Goodwill. The roads were snow-covered, but not at all dangerous to drive on. Within a short time that had all melted.
The river looked lovely as we drove by... And soon we arrived at the new ferry across Lake Champlain at the site of the Lake Champlain Bridge . The bridge is now gone and soon construction of a new bridge will begin. If you check that link you will see the original and majestic bridge. Now this is all that remains...
But life goes on, and so did we, ... boarding the ferry for the three minute crossing to Vermont. That's just a little bit more than the actual driving time to cross via the old bridge.
There is no more bridge. But,... in keeping with North Country humor,... The local favorite restaurant on the Vermont side is now called:
And now that the ferry service is established,.... the Bridge Restaurant, for now called the "No" Bridge Restaurant, welcomes New Yorkers back to the Vermont side of the lake.
For a great breakfast (or any meal!) visit the Bridge Restaurant in West Addison, Vermont. Say hello to owner, Lisa, and enjoy some eggs over easy,... my favorite! After breakfast we continued north to Burlington, dropped off our donations to Goodwill, did grocery shopping and arrived back home by mid-afternoon. A great trip for a late winter day.
