Sightseeing and then Relax Sunday, 2012-05-20

Today we just hung around and relaxed.  Marilyn did some reading, email, etc.  I spent most of the day organizing and renaming pictures.

Yesterday, we drove from Bennington to Manchester, VT and back along Vermont’s scenic and historic Rte 7A.  It is a very pretty ride along the valleys between the mountains.  Along the way, we stopped at Robert Frost’s Stone House where he spent most of his life.2012-05-19 DSC01737 Robert Frosts Home Stone House2012-05-19 DSC01739 Robert Frosts Home Stone House  Inside, they have descriptions of his life, along with some information about his poetry.  One room was almost totally devoted to “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening”.IMG_0637 

After lunch in Manchester, we stopped to see the last two of Vermont’s covered bridges in the area.  One was on Covered Bridge Road, and the other was un-named, but there was a sign that read “One Dollar Fine For Driving Faster Than a Walk on this Bridge”.2012-05-19 DSC01743 Covered Bridge on Covered Bridge Road2012-05-19 DSC01745 5th Vermont Covered Bridge  The second bridge was rebuilt with cement pilings and macadam road base instead of wood.  However, it is still a one lane bridge.

Our final stop was at the Chocolate Barn for some delicious Truffles.

Type at you later.
