A Trip on the Champlain Canal

Members of the club on a field trip to the Champlain Canal where we passed through locks, saw lovely homes along the shore and an RV park where modern Gypsies stop for  a day, a week or until the colder weather drives them south. 


 The boat was a true sternwheeler run with a chain drive that spun the wheel and pushed us forward.  It has a shallow draft and could move easily along the canal.
     Thanks to Sally who arranged the trip for us and also must have ordered up such a beautiful day.
