Finally, a day without head winds! It was so nice pedaling without having to slog into the wind all day.

We left the campground and rode 10 miles or so to Middlebury, where we stopped for a very substantial breakfast at the Park Diner. Jodi had a stack of 3 blueberry pancakes with real Vermont maple syrup. I had hash and eggs and toast and home fries (and a bit of Jodi’s pancake).

From Middlebury we headed west on Rt 125 towards Chimney Point on Lake Champlain. Along the way we stopped at the general store in Bridport for a Gatorade and to pick up a few snacks. We drank the Gatorade and packed the snacks away until we reached Chimney Point. There is a small historic site here and we sat and ate our snacks. Once finished Jodi decided to tour the small museum, and I opted to sit in an Adirondack chair on the porch overlooking the lake, enjoy the breeze, and take a short nap.

Finally we roused ourselves and climbed back on the bikes and headed north along the east shore of the lake. A couple of miles later we came on an ice cream shop so stopped for a cone. After this, we finally pedaled the last ten miles or so to Button Bay State Park.
