~Beautiful Vermont~

Well now, let me tell you about Vermont. Simply stated I could easily have stayed there the entire two weeks. It is beautiful, the people were the friendliest, I met on the trip. The Green Mountains are Paradise, Burlington is a wonderful city, and I'm considering retiring there. It was so inviting, that I made a return trip the weekend of October 6-7. I'd like to go again in January or February to see the mountains covered in snow. "To watch His woods fill up with snow" to steal a phrase from Robert Frost, whose cabin I visited while there. The following sums up my feelings.

The Unitarian Church in Burlington

Downtown Burlington, VT

Another not-so-good sunset.

The B&B where I stayed. Highly recommended!

The Chipman Inn Since 1828 Bill and Joyce were great hosts.

My room was bottom right

What are they doing?

Bobbing for apples!
