Postcards from Vermont

 I drove to Vermont last weekend to visit my Mom.   Autumn in Vermont is a delightful time of year.

As I drove, I tried to stop and capture the magnificent day for you.

It was one of those glorious Fall days that change from gray skies to blue skies against a backdrop of gorgeous Fall leaves.

 Every now and then the sun highlighted colorful trees on the mountains.

I stopped by this adorable Malt Shop in Stowe.

I brought my book A Fine Romance inside and sat by the fire while they prepared my grilled cheese sandwich and fries.

I listened to oldies as I enjoyed this charming little Malt Shop.  Paul Anka sang Put Your Head on My Shoulders.  

For just a moment I was back dancing with Jimmy Rendall at a Junior High dance. Sigh, he was such a tall, good looking hunk and my first crush.

Then onto memorize some more views before the sun set.

Stowe is a favorite of mine.  Can you believe these views?

Just before sunset, I started on my way for the long drive back to Massachusetts.

Well I hope that you have a lovely day.  And Jimmy Rendall wherever you are, thanks for the memories.

 I hope to return before the end of October to see the leaves at peak season.

Karen...what a beautiful and sweet post! I would love to see your part of the Country during this time of year.

May the rest of your fall be just as fine as the beginning and may you reconnect with jimmy rendall one day!

Thank you for sharing all of this beauty with us. It is breathtaking. New England is on my list of places I want to visit.

I hope all is well with your mother.

So beautiful! I'd still love to spend time in Vermont this autumn, but sadly it won't be happening after all. Oh well...I'll revisit this post. Wonder if John would recognize his favorite ice cream shoppe. Hope that you get to travel up again in peak season.

Earl and I were just saying that on an upcoming vacation we would like to travel the east coast in fall. These photos have sealed the deal. This is so beautiful! I hope you had a great time with your mom, thank you for sharing the beautiful views!
