May the nights always be aglow
with the bliss of the day
with unharmed hands and feet
and kissed cheeks.
The glow of an October evening on Lake Champlain, in Burlington, VT. Photo taken October 2016.
A couple of contented pooches soaking up the late afternoon Autumn sun. They have the right idea. Not a bit concerned about anyone who may or may not wish to enter this shop, but they do invite us to sit down and just relax with them.
Burlington, VT. Oct 2016
The town of Burlington, VT, as viewed from one of the beaches on the bicycle trail along the lake.
I walked passed this hidden door 6 times before I noticed it. Six times along the sidewalk, brushing the privet hedge. I am now alert to doorways (thanks to Norm!) and was appreciating the variety of doors on this street in Burlington, VT when this one called out to me.
Suddenly I noticed an opening in the hedge … And I had to have a closer look …
Let’s take a road trip – just for the FUN of it!! Boston to Burlington.
One the highlights of summer has to be the “road trip”. When I was a kid, all our vacations were road trips – usually while hauling a camper trailer.
This week, I’m off with hubby on one of his business trips. And we decided, much to my delight, to make it into a little road adventure, by adding a road component to the commute. This road trip begins with plane ride (… Well, actually we did drive from home to the airport, so …).
The #4 Highway took us to Killington (major ski resort) at the southern tip of the Green Mountain National Forest and then to Rutland, where we turned north along the #7 Highway . We had intended to drive through the Green Mountains, but somehow we missed that turn off. My driver does not like to retrace steps.
Including many solar farms – large and small. You can’t see it in this photo, but there were hundreds of solar panels at the solar farm. The photo was snapped while we whizzed by. My driver doesn’t care to stop, either, apparently.
All that “no stopping” and “no retracing” paid off. We arrived in Burlington in plenty of time to have walk (that was a long drive!!), and sit on a patio for dinner as the setting sun warmed the bricks of this lovely building across the street.
I see a glass of wine in our future … Or maybe a local cider. Yup! Cider it is!
I learned that John Dewey, of the ” …education is not preparation for life. Education is life…” fame is counted amount their noted alumni.
Here are just some of the doors:

Not a bad place to spend a couple of days!!

And then I stop and sit and eat.
