Hello! I normally only do one travel post a week, but I spent my entire day off yesterday planning our holiday vacation so I wasn't able to spend any time in my craft room…thus I have nothing 'crafty' to show you. Plus, I realized that my holiday vacation is only a few weeks away (yeah….happy dance!), so I really need to finish up with my posts from my summer vacation to New Hampshire because soon I will have new pictures and stories to share.
On day four of our New Hampshire/Vermont vacation we started our adventures with a stop at Quechee Gorge. From there we took a short drive across this adorable covered bridge to enter Quechee Village.
Below is a view from the bridge. You can see the back side of the restaurants, shops, and glass blowing factory. This area was also significantly altered from Hurricane Irene. There are old photographs in the glass blowing factory that show what it use to look like before the hurricane hit. One building was a total loss, and has still not been fixed/rebuilt, and a sidewalk behind the buildings now longer exists.
restaurant which overlooks the river (No, we did not eat there. I like good food, but I have a hard time spending a ton of money on something that will be gone in a few minutes). The main floor is a store which sells the hand blown glass creations, and the basement is where the items are made: this is where we spent most of our time. There are benches where you can sit and watch from start to finish a glass creation being made. We watched this young man make a Christmas Tree. The artists are close enough that you can talk to them, and ask questions. They were all very friendly.
