A Walk in the Park

Post date: Jul 20, 2012 2:00:35 PM

Every now and then, we like to take a break from the daily grind. We Leave early from work, pack up the car and drive somewhere, anywhere that's not home. These trips allow us to unwind and relax. It's different than a weekend away or a vacation afar. A day away, mid-week, resets the circuits and removes the daily stress.

Today's adventure was Stowe. A short drive from the orchard, this resort town offers everything a day tripper needs. There's hiking, gorgeous views, great food and excellent picnic areas.

We started the day with a walk; nothing too difficult because it was HOT! Eventually, we made our way on down to a river. Blue jumped right in and per usual, he pulled Michelle along for the ride. He really enjoyed the cool, refreshing water.

We did the obligatory posing for photos.

After all the water and walking we were famished. It was time to find some grub. Before we could leave, Blue had to shake off....

Blue Shakin

We headed out and grabbed some sandwiches and had a quick little picnic. As we packed up the car, closed the doors and started the engine a bolt of lightning lit up the sky. Would you believe the timing? We didn't, DOWNPOUR. The day finished with a HUGE thunderstorm. Oh, and of course a trip to the brewery for the "must have" 4-pack of Alchemist's Heady Topper.

Ah, days like this are great.
