vermont - quiet time

It's the quiet time of year in Vermont
foliage is past its peak and ski season, not yet in full swing
while I enjoy both foliage and skiing,
I enjoy this most

more scenes from the train station in North Bennington
and daughter Laura, clowning around with my new bff

later - entering my favorite book store
- once again, noticing this fence across the street

I wonder why I have never stopped to take photos

without the usual crowds in Manchester Center
I'm free to wander with my camera

Can you believe it's mid-November - already?
 time to think about turkey dinners, family gatherings, tractor parades...
and being thankful for all we have - and don't have
and for me, quiet weekends in Vermont
Have a wonderful weekend!

  17. Quiet times aka past crowd season of leaf peeping are my favorites as well. After seeing the train station and your "friend," we have added Bennington, VT, on our ever growing list of places to visit. Grenville is a huge train fan and we have made many station visits.
