Vermont Quilt Festival 2017 - Weekend Getaway- Part 1

On Friday, my friends Edith, Laurel, and I headed to Vermont for a getaway weekend. Our first stop was for lunch at Dana's Restaurant by the Gorge in Quechee, VT.  (Note: this breakfast and lunch spot is about ten minutes from the White River Junction intersection of 89 and 93. I've been stopping at Dana's for years, and the food is always yummy. )

The Quechee Gorge is more impressive in person than it may appear in this photo.

Here we are . . . three gorgeous gals at the gorge taken shortly after we had gorged at Dana's. (Okay, that's enough of that . . . )

 We did stop along the way at one quilt shop, Haphazard Quilting, in Canaan, NH. It's a small shop that has only been open for a year, but there is a nice selection of fabric and notions.

Finally, we arrived in Stowe, VT where we would stay two nights. The inn we stayed at was right near the recreational path.

Stowe had been having periodic thunderstorms, so the water was roiling with steam/fog rising off it. Perhaps this image gives a clearer idea of the raging water.

That night we ate at a small, nearby Italian restaurant,  Trattoria La Festa. We were warmly welcomed by the host, and we enjoyed a delicious meal. If you visit Stowe, you would enjoy this restaurant.

Meanwhile, while I was off gallivanting in Vermont, Miss Emma was settling right in at her home away from home. My friend Annmarie sent this photo to me. How very lucky I am to have friends with whom she can stay. :-) Ahhh, both Emma and I agree, "Life is good."
