Our long weekend in Vermont already seems a long time past, but I have the pictures to prove that we really were there just ten days ago. I’ve never been to Lake Champlain, so we set our sites on Burlington, but also took in the beautiful farmlands and mountains nearby in our travels.
High points of our visit included a sail on the lake (the captain let me take the helm for a while, which is a topic for another post), the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum (where I learned about the very complex history of Benedict Arnold), the Shelburn Museum (yes, that really is a steamboat in the middle of the lawn), Fort Ticonderoga in New York (site of critical Revolutionary War battles), and the Von Trapp Greenhouse and demonstration garden in Waitsfield, Vermont (yes, those Von Trapps). Oh, and the food was truly amazing. Enjoy!
