ROAD TRIP

Yesterday, hubby and I took a road trip. We headed south to Burlington first to have some breakfast at International House of Pancakes, that was great. Then onward to Middlebury where we found a rinky old flea market that I think had more fleas than anything else. I noticed this antique telephone there, see how dirty it is. I believe most of these people leave their belongings out all week, under tarps, but all the same. I got some great instructions on the use of my camera from a vendor, thanks Mr. Vendor person, it was all useful.Traveling along we spotted this deer just eating away under the apple tree.
Here, nearby was her friend. Usually one doesn't get this close to the deer.
We continued on our trip to the Maritime Museum in Vergennes Vermont. If you would like to see more of what we saw, you can go here: http://www.lcmm.org/
We have this new saying on our desktop.
Here is hubby on a very old wooden ship, the ship is called The Ethan Allen Gun Boat. Hubby loves old boats and war time that includes ships and boats and such. Actually our home is located on a waterway to the broad lake (Lake Champlain) where the boats sailed to and from the ocean, right on by our house. This is sometimes amazing to think about.
Here is a picture of a painting of a canal boat. I loved this picture.
Here is a picture of a document of boats and fares, boats that traveled up and down Lake Champlain, names of the boats, etc.
Here is a beautiful wooden ships wheel. I loved this...
Here is diving head gear. I think these things are kinka freaky.
We had a wonderful day exploring and being together. Happy Labor Day weekend everyone.
Thanks for stopping by.
