Wonderful day at Shelburne Farms. Entry to come later, but photos are up.
Left Boston Monday morning after picking up our Chrysler SUV, a nice car but too many bells and whistles so can make a difficult job of driving on the right hand side of the road a little more challenging. We started the journey on an interstate highway which makes the F3 look like a goat track but had no alternative until we got about halfway to Hartford. Left the interstate and followed the minor roads to Sturbridge ...
... are almost home! The White Mountains greet us in New Hampshire and we enjoy a familiar landscape. The clouds threaten rain and we prepare ourselves... Sara dons the rain gear, Mark will weather the storm. An hour from home and we encounter spots of heavy rain, although we aren't bothered, we are soaked. It's a bittersweet return. At the sound of the bike our neighbors welcome us home and Mark kisses the ground. We can hardly believe its over. What an amazing ...
... the most beautiful state I have had the privilege to explore. Riding was slow again today as I received my cell phone tonight in Middlebury.

The city is beautiful with a pedestrian only Main Street that boasts a massive Ben and Jerry's, outdoor exchange, the Vermont flannel company, and a brewpub that carries a beer voted a few years ago to be the best in the world, no ...
We ended up changing our plans so we needed one night in Vermont before taking the ferry to NY. We got the last room available at this motel, and it was about $100 for the night. We walked in the room and right away we noticed dirty wall, dirty chair and the next morning a dirty shower. So we made it through-but this place is disgusting and unless there are new owners pay extra to say in a better place. We were surprised because everyplace-every gas station, deli, restaurant in Vermont has taken such pride in their place and their work we cam to trust the Vermont in Vermont too much.
