|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.
In this scene the L'Adventure II has loaded its passengers and departed Newport's municipal dock in a thunderstorm for the return voyage to Magog. Lightning is crashing all around and there is a torrential downpour, neither of which seems to phase the L'Adventure II. At least the vessel is appropriately named: I would think being on the lake with lightning hitting close by would be an adventure! It must have been an exciting and wet voyage back to Magog as later in the afternoon a few thunderstorms much stronger than this one swept across the lake.
Why does that Molson Dry banner remind me of Lanaud?
