A Vermont weekend


Recently, my lovey and I spent the weekend in the very quaint town of Woodstock, Vermont. Complete with a general store called, Gillingham's that provides one stop shopping for anything from a fine Bordeaux, to window treatments, to VT maple syrup, or even fishing hip waiters.   

We had a lovely weekend with our pals Mike and Mary. They have a beautiful home walking distance to town so we were able to walk to a fabulous dinner then stumble home...

Of course, prior to that, we had to visit the lovely Woodstock Inn 
and pinch a few cookies during high tea!

While the weather was hotter than necessary we did manage to enjoy an afternoon of golf in the Greenfield Mts near Killington, VT.


And, discover a few covered bridges located throughout Vermont.


Mike and Mary were very gracious hosts...our stay was most appreciated!  If you have a chance to visit Vermont, please do...
there is something to do for everyone...
until then we will keep the home fires burning.


PS.  Mary and I hiked this MT...can I just say...I either need to stop this 
kind of activity or get in much better shape:(

I am insanely jealous over your Vermont weekend. But I am also greedy and would need much, much more than a weekend because, in addition to Vermont, I would also have to visit Maine and New Hampshire...and other places, too!

That mountain you hiked is beautemous, but I'd never live to tell about it :)!

Great shots! I am liking those striped pants of Mary's...

We sped through the green mountains one weekend long ago, well actually we camped. Vermont is a gorgeous state and your weekend sounds heavenly! Sigh.....
