walk and click - middlebury, vermont

A couple summers ago, Greg and I went on a bike ride that looped through the northern half of Vermont - roughly following Adventure Cycling's Green Mountains Loop.
375 miles of beautiful and charming villages, farms, hills and mountains.
(did I mention hills and mountains?)
The ride took us through Middlebury, Vermont - which I vowed to come back and visit someday -
sans bike shorts...


Last Sunday - which was supposed to be 60 degrees and sunny - seemed like the perfect day for taking a walk through a quaint little town.


Yeah - sunny and warm...
not so much.


I'm not sure how Greg managed to keep me from going into this store.
I may have to back, again, someday.


We enjoyed our walk, all the same.


And - as always in Vermont - rocks stacked for meditation.

I hope you all get a chance to get out this week and enjoy your neck of the woods a little.

  15. I love the sound of rushing water. Your photo almost makes it real! What a lovely town and that bridge is wonderful! I could stand there all day and just listen. I think I am in agreement, the store will have to be revisited when you have a big trunk to carry all the stuff you buy home with you! xx
