Lake Champlain

Monday, June 13th

After a long run through Champlain Narrows, we officially entered Lake Champlain proper, passing under the Lake Champlain Bridge. The Coast Guard (it was good to hear them again after so much time on State waters) was issuing warnings for high winds on the lake, so we found a marina just above the bridge for the night.

Port Henry Marina is a fairly new facility that’s well-protected from the lake by a breakwater.

At least where we were, the forecast winds never materialized. Maybe out on the larger section of the lake they did. After a walk to town punctuated by a brief rain shower, we were treated to a full double rainbow.
