It was a month of moving around the northeast, which is fun because I got to hit a lot of places without a lot of mileage (or gas) being involved. Every single mile was on back roads, which are easy to find here, and the skies were uniformly amazing every time. Well done, Northeast!
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!
