|driving from Burlington south on 89|
Yep first day in Burlington and I was off to meet up with Alyson in Norwich, Vermont. We literally met on the border of Vermont and New Hampshire which is defined by the Connecticut River. It is about 1 1/2 hours for me and about 2 hours for her from Boston. She had the day off so we planned to meet for a "girls day". We began at King Arthur Flour to start our day, located just off highway 89 on Route 5 in Norwich. If you read recipes from my http://cmglrecipes.blogspot.com/ you already know how much I like King Arthur products. I have wanted to get there for some classes but couldn't fit that in this trip......someday. We got a cup of coffee and a snack, did some shopping there being fully amazed at the selection of products for baking. It is a bakers dream spot, I left inspired and definitely want to get back for some classes.

After a walk through the store filled with hand blown glass we went on our way. Next up we parked the car and walked along the Quechee Gorge and took some photos from the bridge.
A really full first day in Vermont.......but I saved some fun for tomorrow......
