Come with us to Vermont, won't you?!

One of the many things I love about where we live in New Hampshire is the fact that we are only an hour and a half from Maine, and an hour and a half from Vermont!  Yesterday we drove to Vermont to do a little antiquing in the small town of Chester.  We like to take the back roads as much as possible to see more of the countryside of our newly adopted region, and on the way home we drove through the charming town of Grafton, Vermont.  We've driven through Grafton many times- it has a lovely energy and is filled with charming antique houses, many art galleries and museums.  The surrounding mountains offer a warm embrace.  We always feel as if we have been transported back a hundred years when we drive through. 
I thought you might like to join us?!
It was a cool-ish 50 degrees with cloudy skies and sprinkles every now and again.... in other words, it was a lovely day!!


You can't go to Vermont without seeing at least one covered bridge!



This one was near the Grafton Village Cheese Company.



I'm guessing this is a sign you're not used to seeing everyday?!






I adore this house with its mountain view!











The town library.



Many small New England towns have village stores like this.



The Grafton Inn.







The Town Offices- please notice that taxes are due this month!



Look what I found at this lovely home.... another Texan!!!



This house belongs to the Justice of the Peace!



Another covered bridge!



Main Street.



I love this truck!  My dream is a red one;)


Not just for show, this truck is still a workhorse.






Loved this twig fence- it went on for a good 100+ feet.






Love the purple front door.



I love how this entire house is red, even the trim.





Don't miss the chicken in the front walk at this house!






This charming side porch belongs to the house above.  It overlooks the river that runs through the town.



This river.


We loved this antique stone wall and the stone steps going down to the river.


Thanks for coming along!  Hope you enjoyed your visit to Vermont this weekend;)!!
