Along the way, we detoured to a Western Town suggested by Roadtrippers.com a mile off of our route which was closed for the season. I am not sure what season it's open. One of us is missing something. So we stopped at a goofy little mini-golf and had ourselves a round and a visit to their haunted house (ooo scary-not so much). We had a cheesy fun time.
So we meandering through rolling hills, up into the mountains and across the farm lands of Upsate New York. There was little town after little town all of which said, The Historic Town of... What could be historic other than the old man on the rocker on the big white porch? By the time you realize it was a historic town and had an interest in knowing why, you were out of it.
We passed by a farm that caught our eye. There were rows and rows of cows. Big ones, medium ones and little ones. It was the little ones that made Elizabeth squeal, "Daddy can we stop??!!" I was the icing. "Yeah, Honey, can we??!!" Yaaayy!
He gladly stopped and we jumped out to see them.
Roadtrippers also pointed out the Vermont Teddy Bear factory along our route. YAY! We didn't make it in time for a factory tour but their store was open to browse.
It is a modest factory where they hand make their bears. Really neat actually. Fun but simple.
On a Sunday evening, it was just hopping with people, restaurants and music. We happened upon a music concert going on called Festival of Fools. How'd they know we were coming. There were these crazy characters and aliens singing and dancing. Felt a little Twilight Zone. The kids loved it. We had dinner outside at an Irish Pub. We made a run (literally) for the waterfront for a Burlington sunset (blocks downhill ignoring the fact that what is going down quickly must come back up slooowwwllyy). Burned our dinner off. We headed to our hotel just outside of town. Quality Inn. Eh.
Tomorrow, we are very excited for the Ben & Jerry's factory. Ice cream dance. Boothbay Maine is our next stop for a couple of days.
Turning in now. Sorry there is so much detail. Two reasons. One, they input pictures within the writing if you add detail. Two, I can turn this into a memory book later.
