Vermont – the place my hubby likes

July 18, 2013

Fun, Nature, Travel

IMG_5219My mom and a friend came to visit. Of course it was nice to have your mom around you for 3 weeks and the house is cleaned, the laundry done and most importantly my hubby is happy as his shirts were ironed in time.

One weekend we thought to go to places we like and what comes first in mind? Vermont! As it reminds my hubby of Norway – the landscape, the green, the trees – it provides him a “home feeling”.

So we stopped by at our favorite restaurant in Waterbury: Hen of the Wood – the MUST place to go, when in Vermont and when one wants to enjoy a REALLY good meal. But prior to our evening treat we did a factory tour at nearby Ben & Jerry’s. My mom liked it but with the nice dinner ahead of us we decided to share a small cone. Still, the definition of small is something I have to get used to…

The next day we drove to Burlington and did a boat trip at lake Champlain. Perfect conditions and the boat season had just started. On our way back we stopped in Middlebury, drove these little roads where one starts to wonder whether this is an official road but we made it home with nice memories in mind.

    I adore peonies! Just this spring we found some growing in one of our obscure gardens (former owner’s garden area we haven’t cultivated yet)!
