Weekend trip

Well summer is winding down now so Sam and I decided we wanted to pack in some traveling toward the end.  We took Saturday and drove up to Burlington VT.  It’s really nice up there, a lot like here but a little more diverse and developed.  I was surprised at the number of different clothing styles and cultures we saw up there.  Its seems more and more like Saratoga is just rich offensive white people and its wearing on the nerves a bit lately.

We ate lunch at a place called The Scuffer, the food was great.  Two 1 1/4 lb lobster meals and FREE BEER REFILLS of Magic Hat For $70.  The meal came on 4 different plates it was so big and their beer battered fries were seasoned perfectly.  The only thing I didn’t like about up there were it seemed the restaurants all had the same menu.  Burgers and salads and sandwiches nothing out of the ordinary, very limited choices.  I mean being on one of the great lakes we thought we’d get a nice seafood restaurant or some really good freshwater fish meals but really the scuffer was the only place with seafood on their menu and it was lobster Samon or river trout.


We shopped on Church Street for a bit, which is like a main street in Burlington that has been completely closed and turned into a shopping and food hub.  One thing both Sam and I noticed that was really weird and totally not like NY is that it seems everyone there is in their own little world and the walk around all weird.  In NY people walk like information almost like a traffic flow and we all know how to avoid each other, but up there people walk all awkward like they are afraid of you and get all scared if the have to move around you or step in front of you.  You know the awkward I’ll go this was you go that way situations that’s all it is up there.

On the way back I went a little out of the way to take a ferry across Lake Champlain to break up the drive.  Champlain is so big its like being on the Ocean at time.  I took this picture of this little tiny lone Island dead in the center of this huge lake.

  1. There were no fresh seafood probably because they were all being exported, leaving behind pretty much nothing for themselves.

    You want fresh seafood and crap, gotta go to Seattle.
