An autumn getaway in Vermont

We drove up to Chittenden, Vermont, today for a long weekend with my folks and my mom's cousin, Martha. It was about a 3.5 hour journey northwest of Boston, and it's abundantly clear that it's autumn in New England -- sunny but very chilly. The house where we're staying is a beautiful place right on a quiet lake with a private dock. No major plans - Peter is perusing some maps and brochures of some local attractions we'll probably hit tomorrow, but tonight, we're staying put, eating mom's homemade chili, and playing some games.


  1. Where did you find those leaves? Those colors do not appear in nature, so unusual. Have a great weekend. Yummmm, chili.

  2. The reference to chili caught my attention! The weather is definitely cool enough here to enjoy some hearty chili with cornbread but out leaves don't look nearly as good as yours.

    Enjoy your weekend!

  3. Someday I hope to see the autumn colours of the Northeast.

  4. Sounds like a terrific weekend to me
