2010 Nowak Vacation
Maine, New Hampshire & Vermont
Sunday, June 6 - Vermont Bakery, Ice Cream and
It was a very rainy day.
The temperatures never got out of the 50's. We needed to find some "inside"
things to do today, so we headed south to Norwich, VT to the King Arthur Bakery
Store. Sharon really loved this store.
We ate lunch in our car
while the rain poured down, and then headed north to Waterbury, VT for
& Jerry's Ice Cream Factory.
We did the tour with a
crowd of people. No, not the two people above -- the tour group had just left
when I snapped this photo. They leave out every 15 minutes with about 20-25
people. At the end of the tour everyone got a free sample of a new flavor that
was being introduced.
The sample was not
enough though. Sharon and I had to get a couple ice cream cones on the way out.
She had Milk & Cookies flavor and I had Peanut Brittle. Don't judge
us...you would have done the same too.
Just down the road in
Stowe, VT was
Emily's/Stowe Hollow/Gold Brook Covered Bridge (lots of
different names over the years). It is also rumored to be haunted. We didn't
see any ghosts but as you can see in the photos below we didn't get out of the
car for a photo.
We have heard about
Vermont cheese, syrup and chocolates so we pulled over when we had an
opportunity to try some free samples (I mean, shop). We stopped at a place
where Lake Champlain Chocolates, Cabot Cheese, a Camera Shop, and Kitchen Store
were all located around a common parking lot. With a few days left, we just
checked out our options.
It was now late
afternoon and we started heading back toward Littleton. When we saw the capitol
building at Montpelier I had to stop for a few photos (which also included some
other interesting churches and homes).
On we drove toward the
hotel, but covered bridges would stop us two more times. Below is Martin
Covered Bridge located in Marshville
Next was a footbridge
found in West Danville, VT.
We finally made it back
to the Littleton where we ate dinner and then headed out one last time looking
for moose. Well...no moose, but as the light was fading we did see a
There is less chance of
rain tomorrow. We're hoping for much less rain and a little sunshine. There's
so much to see and so little time left.
