Montpelier, Another Bridge, A Truck and Pumpkins

06 Oct

Thanks to a comment from Hudson, we went into, rather than bypassing, Montpelier and were delighted that we did – what a lovely city! There are some remarkable buildings, beautiful spires and covetable homes in lovely colours. We had coffee and a warm cinnamon bun in a community cafe called Bagito’s that had painted light shades and walls and live music. Painting things seems a local thing to do; we saw concrete barriers painted by local children and a charming street mural.

We followed a painted truck out of the city, found a couple more old covered bridges at Northfield Falls and saw yet more pumpkins decorating people’s porches. It’s lovely how Autumn is celebrated here right from the beginning of October all the way to Hallowe’en.

    Glad you enjoyed, I thought you might. I spent a week in that part of Vermont a number of years ago, just traveling about -on and off the beat’n path. Montpelier being the state capital and the hub for the outlaying country folk it was always bustling especially on a Saturday morning. It is not not fancy smancy new like Burlington, the downtown core felt very much alive or so it did the last time I was through. The row of buildings with the balconies hanging over the stream – caught my attention and know exactly the spot where you snapped off the picture. Good shtufffs as always.

    It’s interesting how this community is the capital. Very picturesque setting.

    My boyfriend and I went to Montpelier this summer and ate at Bagitos! We loved it and we really loved going to all the little used bookshops! So much fun in such a darling city.
