Bridges, Beer and Leaf Peeping


Bridges, beer and leaf peeping.This pretty much sums up our Vermont vacation. Mr. Romance and I have now been home one week from our fabulous Vermont vacation. It's taken me that long to get caught up with bills, errands and paperwork. I' worked on this post a littlle ata time, but it is very long and full of lots of photos. I hope you enjoy our photo recap of a wonderful two weeks in Vermont.
We spent most mornings sleeping in until nearly 9 am., and then started our exploring around 11 each morning. Every day involved driving around and finding beautiful, hidden, tree lined, small country roads.
Instead of giving you a day by day account of our travels I thought I would just write the words that come to mind when remembering our fantastic time in Vermont. The only thing we didn't do on our Vermont Bucket list was go fly fishing. The streams were really low and we did not see one person fishing, so we figured they weren't catching much.

Colorful leaves and trees
Delicious crunchy apples
Ben & Jerry's ice cream
Long, relaxing drives
Beautiful lakes and streams
Peaceful places to hike
Small town America
Trails for biking and walking
Gondola ride
Barns
Cooking Breakfast in our room

Good beer
Cool, crisp weather

Wool sweaters, socks and boots
Quilt displays
Hot and humid
Trapp Family Lodge 
Outlet shopping
Great hotel rooms
University of Vermont Hockey
Beautiful Covered Bridges

Showing you lots and lots of photos, almost all taken with the iPhone 6

Looks like something out of Norman Rockwell's paintings! We will have to add Vermont to our bucket list! Love the photos - they look like post cards!

Wha great shots...
I love Vermont.
My sister lives in Dorset.
Last year, I went to the Vermont Quilt Fest.
It'd been on my bucket list a long time and it did not disappoint.
Every time I go, I always leave so inspired by color...
Either the magnificent greens of summer or those fabulous fall hues.
The original Jane Stickle quilt is in the Benninfton Museum, but only displayed once a year.
Glad you enjoyed your trip.
I did, too.
