The End of the Day
This is where we ended up after a quiter day...at The SAALT Pub in Gorhanm New Hampshire
Hello to our Fellow Travelers,
It's so nice to have your comments on the blog and on emails to keep us company.
Today was a quieter day, and in Vermont and New Hampshire that is partlly because everything that one would want to take a side trip to see is closed on Sunday. So, we left Bulington to take a turn on Highway 2--a two lane highway from Vermont to Gorham, New Hampshire. We are in a lovely court motel, but upstairs, overlooking Mt.

For our Foodie Fans out there: tonight we ate at the SAALT Pub (forgot to ask about the name.) Lovely pub fare of exceptional soup - French Onion in a teensy Le Creuset dutch oven for me, and a cup of squash, apple and fennel for John; a smoked bacon and cheddar sandwich for John and a broiled chicken leg for me; accompanied by a simple salad of greens and a good olive oil and vinegar dressing. Perfect for a cold evening when you can feel the season beginning to change. Perfect that we were seated in a tiny bank vault.
Tomorrow we head into Bar Harbor, Maine, which is supposed to be in the low 50's during the day ( I am going to get that snow suit...) There are supposed to be
The beginning of Day 11
Driving out of Burlington Vermont under cloudy skies
some wonderful walks to take in Acadia National Park and a drive up Cadillac Mountain is a must, I hear.
A quiet Sunday--bliss!
