Just some random shots of Burlington. Saturday was gorgeous ( sunny, low 70's, no wind) and it was commencement weekend at the University of Vermont (UVM) and St Michael's College. Lots of people hanging about enjoying the weather. Enjoy!

World Famous Nector's Restaurant home to Phish ( the band)
Elton John is coming to Vermont in July! The Flynn Theatre is our "Performing Arts" theatre, although it was a movie theatre when I was growing up.
Note to Jano: What's Your Beef, now known as Trattoria Della. Wonder if they still put the baby shrimp and chopped hard cooked egg on their salads? That was so very exotic in the 70's/80's :)

Bennington Potters North, my favorite browsing store
Vermont transportation, green in more ways than one

Milling about at the Farmers' Market

Blatantly free advertising for the Fletcher Free Library

  9. Oh how I loved Vermont. When we were stationed in upstate NY, we spent every weekend we could, traveling around and Vermont was always a favorite spot.
    I loved seeing your photos. Makes me long for another trip up your way. And now knowing you are there makes it even more special!

    I love that you are *tweaking* your yard! I adore that word and when it was used in YGM, I laughed so hard!

    I bet it all looks gorgeous!

    Love to you...your FIL must be so much better since he wants to be OUT so badly! Good for him!


  10. Visited there several times when we lived in NH and MA - really nice town in very green Vermont!

    Your book will be on it's way soon - if you visit me you will see why I've been so busy and am all behind with indoor things!
    Hugs - Mary.
