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.
I was particularly interested to note that the local elementary school is next door to the town library & arts centre, which in turn, is next to a museum – a school museum. I was touched by message this sends. Teaching an appreciation for history, art and reading.
Nicely done, Stowe!

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
Even though it was technically closed for the season (no admission charged 😀), we managed a good walk on the grounds of Shelburne Farms yesterday.
Just past the barn, the trail took us through the woods. We went past a sugar shack – the doors shut – all ready and waiting for the late winter maple sugaring season.
Then it was on to the Inn. It appears that the main house of the original estate is now the Inn and Restsurant. It was closed for the season, but tempting for another time.

The town of Burlington, VT, as viewed from one of the beaches on the bicycle trail along the lake.
This was a happy discovery. A brief walk to stretch our legs during a recent brief (and speedy!) road trip through Vermont, introduced us to the very charming town of Woodstock.
Here are just a few of the pretty doorways we wandered past.
And I must admit, it was (or is) quite possibly the coolest. It certainly offers a very wide variety of quality products – everything outdoor gear and clothing to local cheese to children’s books to groceries to trendy pet accessories to beer and wine to salt & pepper shakers. A very modern general store.
It was a quick stop and a fleeting visit, but I reckon we’ll be back.

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 …
