For the love of chocolate

Posted on August 17, 2022


Vermont is known for its beautiful hiking trails. Mr. Ken and I wanted to take advantage of this. So we found nice trail called Butternut Hill Loop in Chester Vermont. The directions to get there were straightforward.

We turn off from the main road, ever on the lookout for the trail sign. Um, well we managed to drive all the way to the top of Butternut Hill without finding a sign. Sigh, so we drove down the other side of Butternut Hill.

Instead, we decided to continue on to downtown Chester and have lunch. We had lunch on the porch of the Fullerton Inn. This inn is a quintessential Vermont country inn. It was a perfect summer day and it was delightful sitting outside.

We then browsed the cute stores. I was happy to see a candy store, since I have a wicked sweet tooth. Oh happy days, they have hand crafted chocolates! And decorated lollipops. Yum.

The box is pretty in itself

Toby, another one with a sweet tooth, also got in on the action.

The day was a success since we had a nice lunch and got some delicious candy. Hah, so much for hiking.
