Gilead, VT – 09-25-2019

My friend, Nicole, is from “around here” and she posted a picture about this cute Mill and I didn’t have any intentions of heading out to find it.  I was just out driving and lo and behold, there it was!

Such a cute little place nestled away from the road – the red is now faded to pink.

Driving back I, of course, went a different route.  I came up on this sweet old barn with an orange tree w/half its leaves falling.  Made for a gorgeous backdrop.

Vermont Drive–09-20-2019

I took drive over to VT “just cuz”.  I can stop when I want when I have no destination in mind.  No where to go but “somewhere” can be fun.

I came up on this lake in VT, which was crystal clear and cold.  I snapped a few pictures and drove on back home.

Then I pulled over and snapped one last picture…..

Hope Cemetery–7-27-2019

I took off one afternoon, a HOT afternoon, and went out to VT to check out this famous for its headstones Cemetery.

Wow.  Some of these head stones/monuments are gorgeous.  And – HUGE!  I can’t even imagine what kind of work goes into this.

I really liked these happy faces.  They reminded me of a prop I bring with me (and hadn’t that day, darn it!) who’s name is Ballsy.

Did you see the Superman inspired headstone?  I love it!  I want one.  I know my wife won’t let me.  But, I LOVED it, none the less!

That race car must have weighed 4 tons.  It is huge and gorgeous.  These photos were nowhere near my comfort zone of taking pictures, however, I think that’s part of photography, getting out of your comfort zone. 

After Ben & Jerry’s–7-19-2019

I went off after work Friday to Ben and Jerry’s!  You aren’t able to take pictures inside the place, and the ice cream was great!

Afterwards, I did get some time in two cemeteries.  Yes, you read that right……

You don’t really think of tombstones as beautiful, but they can be.
