Beautiful pink sunrise this morning. The past few days have been cool and sunny. Lovely weather for touring the area with family visiting from Europe. November in the southern Vermont area means having to look a little deeper to see the beauty in the hills, the waterways and the sky. A perfect chance to see it all through the eyes of a visitor, even one coming from the idyllic landscape of southern France. The shorter daylight hours have been plenty for day-tripping and regular stops for art and coffee and good food have taken the chill off. Evening conversation and cozy fires have eased us gently into the dark and cold night.
Turns out Vermont has lots to offer – even in November. A quiet and stark beauty, the thin light casting long shadows on the landscape, with time to meander the roads, and to browse in the local shops. A visit to be treasured. And a time of year to be savored.
