For the love of chocolate

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 […]

The top of a beautiful mountain range that is. So Mr. Ken and I are back in Vermont. The first day of our vacation, we decided to take a hike at the Owl’s Head Trailhead in Dorset, Vermont. This trail takes you up to the Gettysburg Quarry, where marble blocks were cut for gravestones for […]

First kayak adventure of the season

So the happy day arrived; Mr. Ken and I were all set to go kayaking. In deference to my shoulder injury and to us getting older in general, Mr. Ken bought a nifty new kayak rack system. With this new system, you only have to lift the kayak to about hip height, place it on […]

Oh happy day!  It’s time to start kayaking.  We lost last year since I was recovering from shoulder surgery.  It was a bit stop and go this year since Mr. Ken broke his wrist a few months ago.   But, we are good to go now and I can’t wait. Here they are! All ready to […]

As the Covid news gets a bit better, it should be time to venture out more. At least for some of us who have been hermits for the past two years. Last Sunday, Mr. Ken and I went to a talk at our local library. I was a little bit nervous going there since the […]

So Mr. Ken and I came home from our weekly hike and I was excited to see two packages from Amazon awaiting us. Mr. Ken looked at me and said, “What did you order from Amazon this time?” I replied, “Um, I can’t remember.” And then Mr. Ken gave me another look. You all know […]

Reflections during a hike

Mr. Ken and I are very happy that we are able to enjoy nature at our favorite lake. During the Pandemic, it was too crowded, but now it is not. Yay. Unfortunately Mr. Ken recently broke his wrist and he has to wear a brace. At least it is not a cast. To his credit, […]

Covid restrictions are less and less these days. Even Mr. Ken and I have ventured out of our house more. We are happy to be able to hike around our favorite lake, which is also where we kayak. When everything was shut down and people were at home, this place got very crowded. We went […]

We brought our little friends, Sir Oliver, Sir Angus and Toby, along with us to Vermont. They wanted to get in on the fun. Not to be outdone by us, they also went hiking. Here they are in our Vermont place, getting ready for their big adventure. Toby was very concerned he might encounter a […]

Road tripping in Vermont – hiking and the Vermont Country Store

So the Wednesday Vermont adventure involved hiking at Lowell Lake in Vermont. The hike around the pretty lake was nice, but it was especially interesting to come across this old cemetery. Not only did we know it was old because of the condition of the gravestones, but because several graves had Revolutionary War Medals on […]
