Day 5.146: Weekend Part 1 - ECHO

Saturday in Burlington was a bit rainy and cool, but that didn't stop us having fun.

Most of our day was spent at the ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center.

But first there was the broody standing around looking across Lake Champlain towards New York and reading about glorious victories over the British while we waited for it to open.


Once inside, we learned a lot about the lake.  Its current occupants:


And its history:


(we also got roared at)

At lunch time we went to American Flatbread, where we managed to order pizzas with no cheese, no sauce and no gluten to please all in attendance.  Great to see locally sourced ingredients and a real brick oven in use:


We also had probably the nicest server ever.

It also gave us an excuse to walk up to the farmers market - where this happened.  Then we returned to ECHO until we could no longer keep going.
