Her view of the week-end:
We woke late Saturday after a very full week. We were looking forward to an afternoon balloon ride to view the fabled Autumn leaves from above. Sadly, this was not to be. The heavy winds of the past week had halted all balloon flights - and ours was no exception. It was rescheduled for Monday, at 6am. Not looking forward ...
... at a lake's edge. Not close enough to get a picture but it was interesting to see it in a natural environment.
We have also learned much about Vermont - 20% of people carry guns in public, has one of the lowest rates of gun crime in the USA and is mandated to have a balanced budget. The population is about 800,000 people - one of the least populated states. Burlington is only 90 minutes away from Montreal so Canadian TV is a pleasant change ...
... even searched for appropriate buildings to house the collections and had them dismantled and moved to the location.
The first building had a furniture collection and the next contained American art. Dave commented, "I feel like we are at the Antiques Road Show without the lines of people."
The last exhibit we visited was some of the rooms in Electra’s ...
... was very luxurious and a treat to see. It’s also on the museum grounds.
The clock was ticking on Carl and Donna, since Carl holds tickets for the U.S.C. game September 5 (fight on!). So, sadly, we said goodbye to our dear and wonderful brother and sister-in-law as they headed west. Tom & I are able to continue vacationing and the blog will continue until we are close to home.
... meaning despite an atmospheric trip
there were no views to be had. However it could have been worse as
Mount Washington holds the claim for the worlds worst weather with
record breaking 200mph+ winds being recorded.
we said good bye to New Hampshire as we crossed into to the lovely
state of Vermont which you clearly see why some call it the nations
most beautiful ...
