All roads lead to cheese

October 5, 2022


We had a rainy day one day in Vermont so we decided to take a road trip to Grafton, the home of the famous Grafton Village Cheese Company. We had quite the adventure getting there! We took Route 121, which sounds like a major road. Well, it was a dirt road, albeit a beautiful one. […]

Dumplings anyone?

September 28, 2022


No, this won’t be a post about food. Rather, it is all about a fabulous hike that Mr. Ken and I had at Jamaica State Park in Vermont. It was a wonderful, early fall day and the sun was streaming through the trees. The trail follows the West River, which had been used for thousands […]

London Bridge is down

September 21, 2022


Beloved Queen Elizabeth has met her maker. We and the guys are in mourning. Here are our guys, sadly watching the funeral as their Queen Elizabeth makes her final visit to Windsor Castle. P.S. A bit of British trivia. The phrase, “London Bridge is down” is used to communicate the death of the Queen to […]

The guys in Vermont

September 14, 2022


We of course brought our guys, Sir Oliver, Toby and Sir Angus, with us to Vermont. They had lots of fun adventures too! Here they are all ready for the big road trip. They went hiking too! Note the little rocks in front of them. These are from the pretty stream in Dorset. They discovered […]

Happy Sir Oliver Day!

September 7, 2022


On September 4, three years ago in 2019, we were in London touring Buckingham Palace. After the tour we visited their gift shop and that’s where we found our dear Sir Oliver and knew immediately he had to join our family. So today we celebrate Sir Oliver Day with cake and a balloon! Of course, […]

Here is Part 2 of my country road walk. Not only is the walk scenic, but it has a few hills, so I am getting my aerobic workout in. Here are some of the views from the top. I especially love seeing the mountains in the background. I was so excited about this view and […]

A view from a country road

August 24, 2022


As you can probably tell from my prior blog posts, I love Vermont! One of my favorite things is to walk in nature. We were very fortunate that the place we stayed was right on a country road. There wasn’t much traffic so it was perfect for walking. And so many pretty sights, which I […]

For the love of chocolate

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 […]

Guilty pleasures in Vermont

August 10, 2022


So Vermont is known for all of its outdoor activities. It is so easy to be active and enjoy the outdoors up there. That being said, we also enjoyed the food. We had delicious, freshly picked corn. Our guilty pleasure was Gifford’s Sea Salt Caramel Truffle. Yum and yum! We went through two quarts in […]

Quirky time

July 27, 2022


We did a road trip to Brattleboro Vermont. It was fun to visit a town, in addition to hiking in nature. I love towns like this! The best way to describe the vibe here is “quirky.” We had a delicious lunch at The Works Cafe. I had smoked salmon on a bagel with cream cheese. […]
