We are off to Vermont and beautiful Lake Champlain for the holiday weekend. The image above is the ferry ( The Valcour) that I worked on for 5 summers in my youth. Quite the prestigious summer gig at the time selling hot dogs and souvenirs to the customers crossing from Burlington Vermont to Port Kent New York. Six days a week, three crossings a day ( it certainly taught you to be on time for work..if you missed the boat you were 2 hours and 10 minutes late!) and a whopping $1.40 per hour. The mountains in the background are the majestic Adirondacks in New York.
