First day of summer vacation in Vermont went like this:
9am: Wake up in a little cabin on Lake Champlain at the Basin Harbor Club. Saunter over to the breakfast buffet in the main lodge with wrap around views of the lake. Old school New England charm was everywhere to be seen - think delicate little china plates and doilies - fresh-baked pastries and hard-boiled eggs in little cups.
10am: Hike up Snake Mountain - enjoy beautiful 360 degree views of the Champlain Valley at the top. Get caught in a torrential downpour in the middle of the thick forest and appreciate the feeling of being totally beholden to mother nature. Also realize how awesome dry clothes can feel.
2pm: Drive through picturesque rolling hills into Middlebury - charming little town where the college by the same name (also my alma mater) is perched on top of one of those rolling hills. Lunch at Noonie's Deli in Marbleworks - best sandwiches in Vermont.
3pm: Peek into Edgewater Gallery in Middlebury where works of emerging and established Vermont artists are featured. The vibrant landscapes are breathtaking, as is the setting - One Mill Street overlooking the falls on Otter Creek.
5pm: Back at Basin Harbor Club for some cannonballs into the pool where the scene is straight out of Poolside with Slim Aarons. I was just missing my floral swim cap.
7pm: Head down to the resort harbor for drinks and dinner (lobster!) by the dock with stunning views of sunset behind the lake and the Adirondacks - all layers of fading grey. Watch kids play shuffleboard in the warm glow of the setting sun.
10pm: Lights out - got a lot more ground to cover tomorrow!
