Description:
The Canadian flagged L'Adventure II plies the international waters of Lake Memphremagog between Magog, Quebec, at the north end of the lake, and Newport, Vermont, almost 30 miles south of Magog. The vessel was built in 1960 and is almost 54 feet long. I don't think it has seen its home port of Montreal, Quebec in many years unless it was transported there by a truck!

In this scene the L'Adventure II is loading its passengers in a thunderstorm for the return voyage to Magog.

Why does that Molson Dry banner remind me of Lanaud?

A few years ago in late May a government car with two U.S. Coast Guardsmen in civilian clothes ran off the edge of the dirt road behind my lakeside cottage on the shore of Lake Memphremagog. The two Guardsmen said they had come from New York City several hundred miles to the south, and were on their way to Magog, Quebec to perform the annual inspection of L'Adventure II so it could operate in U.S. waters and make port calls at Newport, Vermont. Given that they were nowhere close to Magog and were about 10 miles away from a road that would get them there we gathered that they were sightseeing on government time or looking for Osama Bin Laden in my backyard. A government credit card was what it took to get someone to tow them out of the ditch on the side of the road. Such is life in the North Country. :lol:

Thanks very much for your comment Derek; I appreciate it! To make a short story long I was sitting in the Newport, Vermont public library using their internet connection (my summer cottage is about 7 miles north of the city on the lake right by the Canadian border), when I heard through the open window a lot of people speaking French and carrying items purchased in local stores and heading to the dock about a block away. So I put the computer away and walked down there with them and took several photos of this vessel and some others.

Taken with a Cannon digital with the setting on "automatic" -- all of the photos I have posted on this site were taken with the setting on "automatic." Says a lot about the quality of the camera; for the most part I am sold on it---there have been a few cases when I would have wanted to change the setting manually and eventually I will begin doing that.
