Drove straight up to Maggie and Brian's cottage in northern Vermont. Sun shining brightly but deceptively - it was 4deg. The cottage is right on the shore of Echo Lake ( not the same one we saw yesterday - that was south). M & B come here from Montreal, takes about 2 & half hours.

As our hotel was in the city, we walked around the corner to buy fresh muffins and Graeme bought a decent coffee.

We already knew the lawn mower had broken a week after we left, but hopefully ...

And... no travel would be complete without ice cream or gelato and this visit was no exception as Nancie introduced me to Moran Gelato. It was so good, I visited twice and even met Elana's friend, Jonah for some tasty gelato!
