Last Day in Vermont

For our last day, our tour guides drove us north to Stowe where the grand Von Trapp lodge is located.  What a gorgeous view they enjoyed.  I asked David why they settled here. The view reminded them of their home in Switzerland.  (Sound of Music)  Julie Andrews sang and danced around these mountains.

The weather turned and since it was a rainy day, we decided to take in a movie...The Butler.

Marianne prepared a delicious meal of haddock...she is a very good cook.  Then Shelby, their daughter and family came over where we enjoyed a camp fire and roasted marshmallows for s'mores.

David is very proud of his veggie garden.  Since it was going to freeze, we covered them for the night.  

When we left, he sent a bag full of veggies with us.  They will be used in vegetable soup tonight.

Marianne volunteers at the school just down the road and plays the piano at their church.

We certainly enjoyed our short visit with these two wonderful friends.  They are an asset to their community.

A great big THANK YOU to our "Bookends" for a fun time.

Until next time...
