As we returned to our hotel last night there was the most tremendous storm, so much so that as we arrived, we rushed indoors and left some things in the car. Among them was a gift from Shelagh of some of her own hand spun and hand dyed wools and a crocheted pincushion – all so beautiful! Thank you so much. Now I have another new project!
“Oh, The Places You’ll Go!”. Do you know this delightful piece by Dr Seuss? I’m reminded of it day by day as we travel and discover new places, people and beautiful things.
Today as well as more covered bridges,flowers and fungi, we came across the Norman Rockwell Museum in Arlington where he lived and where I met a lovely old chap who had been one of Rockwell’s models. He showed me the painting done when he was just nineteen. I wish I had taken a photo of him with his painting! The young woman who ran the Museum was so friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic!
One of the bridges was over the Bennington Falls which were quite dramatic and in another, Chiselville Covered Bridge I discovered some graffiti, some dating from 1949 and some from 1900, and in such beautiful handwriting!
This beautiful flower, like Cow Parsley, was growing beside the bridge.
