This is a record height for the lake and homeowners along the shore are dealing with immense flooding and wave damage. A disaster area for northwest Vermont has been declared and FEMA agents are on their way to survey the damage.
This is a serious situation for sure, but our curiosity took us out on the water to play around nonetheless in what was a very unique spring Stand Up Paddle in and around the Burlington waterfront.
High water means lots of debris as the Champlain basin rivers empty out ...
A different kind of playground at Perkins Pier.
Soft light as the sun went down ... Looking west (above) and looking east (below) with downtown B-Town as a backdrop.
One of the best Lake front eateries, Breakwaters, was completely swamped. It's a sad sight and will take a big effort to recover from. Wishing the best for a full recovery this spring.
