Another city, another fun museum to explore. This time around, we’re in Worcester, Massachusetts, home to Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), a Triple-A minor league team (go, WooSox!), and the Worcester Art Museum, where an armored dog greets you as you begin your tour.
One of the most fun things I did last week was paddle on a little lake at Rutland State Park, north of Worcester, MA. In fact, it was so nice, we did it twice!
Everyone who buys a camper, whether it’s a 42-foot Class A bus or a tiny tow-behind has a list of requirements in their head as they are making their choice. Or sometimes they don’t… Some people go through 2, 3, or even 4 campers in the space of a half-dozen years, realizing that first one didn’t have X, the second didn’t have Y, and so on. So it does pay to think about what you’ll be doing with — and in — your camper before you shell out the big bucks to buy one.
Let’s just start this post off by stating the obvious when it comes to the Shelburne Museum: these people had money. Like the kind of money that lets you design your dining room around four of the Claude Monet paintings you own. That kind of money. But, instead of collecting more Monets and Manets, they went in the opposite direction: steamboats, lighthouses, and lots of other Vermont treasures. If you think I’m kidding about the steamboat and the lighthouse, I’m not. Check out the cover photo at the top of this post!
Last Friday was an absolutely gorgeous day in Burlington, Vermont so it was also the perfect time to take a lunchtime cruise on Lake Champlain. It was like the sky and lake knew I was in need of some serious soul food, and, boy, did they serve it up!
