Flag of United States  , Vermont
Tuesday, June 12, 2007

We decided to visit some popular attractions south of Burlington today. Shelburne Farms and Shelburne Museum. The Farm is actually several farm-like things. We chose to just visit the main "farm barn" where we saw some cheese being made, a woodworking area and lots of baby animals. The farm barn does not resemble any sort of farm we're familiar with--it's huge and sort of regal looking. The highlight had to be 5 little piglets racing through the yard. After the hike back to our car, we drove further south to Shelburne Museum, a collection of Americana like you wouldn't believe. It's set on several acres and includes both original buildings (school house, church, barn, etc) and replicas of buildings. There is a lighthouse that once stood in Lake Champlain and a large sailing vessel, the Ticonderoga among other things. They had a Shaker craftsman visiting in anticipation of their Shaker exhibit which starts on Saturday--the day we leave unfortunately. There were quilt exhibits, an old time doctor and dentist exhibit...a huge, round, red barn. Highly recommended for people visiting this area. After a stop at a wildflower farm, we headed back north for a scenic drive to look for some covered bridges. Found many. Actually, most of Vermont can be labeled a "scenic drive"
