I flew into Burlington on Thurs night because you can never tell with summer flying. Both flights were delayed and it felt like an entire day traveling- likely somewhat because of the small time difference.

While waiting for the second flight(not a jet), I met someone heading to Burlington for an Ironman here on Sunday. There was a bit of deflation about my fitness level but it didn't last long.

I spent yesterday just enjoying Burlington(kind of made me think of Boulder in steroids). I took a cruise in Lake Champlain in the early afternoon. I love being on the water and definitely enjoyed the breeze and cooler temps.

This may be the first vacation on my own not attached to visits to family and I kind of like just making my own choices. I did have lunch at a restaurant I last visited in 1983 - on the way to skiing. My daughter was about 18 months then and very soon to make me a grandmother.

More to come as the week progresses.
