This is a shot of our sailboat, “Windsong”, anchored in Smuggler Harbor, Valcour Island, Lake Champlain. Valcour Island is on the New York side of the lake slightly north of Burlington, VT and just south of Plattsburgh, NY. Smuggler Harbor opens to the east, so the far shore in this picture is Vermont and the Green Mountains. This is one of our favorite spots on the lake! If you look carefully, you can see a shore line running off the stern of the boat. The cove is so tight that one must tie ashore as well as anchor. (September 2003, photo Benjamin Crosby)
