Guest blogger: "From Albany, New York, to Burlington, Vermont"

After a long day of travelling, I'm too tired to write tonight.  But good news--I have a guest blogger.  Read on!

After a long day of travelling we made it. From Albany, New York, to Burlington, Vermont, singing songs like "99 bottles of beer on the wall, 99 bottles of beer." The scary part about the trip was Granny's driving in the rain, but I'm still alive. Also we were taking a ferry to cross Lake Champlain. The lake was flooding and the water was coming on the dock, but we made it.

Waiting for the ferry
My granny and I went to the Ben and Jerry's ice cream factory in Waterbury, Vermont. We took one of the tours and it was not the best. The only good part probably was the ice cream sample, but the samples were very small.

We also were looking for a hotel in Stowe, Vermont, but there wasn't any hotels we liked. Then we found the place in Burlington, the Courtyard ,with a Lake Champlain view. Nice location a few blocks from downtown.

Tomorrow we think we are going to take a walk by the lake. Wish me luck coming home with Granny's driving!

Great job, Connor!! Sounds like you had a really good time with Granny. Now it's back to the real world and back to school for you.
