If it’s Friday, we must be visiting Vermont

We spent a significant part of the day in Montpelier, the capital of Vermont.

And then it was time for us to rest up for the last day of our travels in New England.

Visiting small towns like Montpelier reminds you that places that are far removed from the nation’s major centers of commerce, politics, and business, can follow a different and perhaps more relaxed pace of life, away from the hustle and bustle of it all.  I get the sense that more people are likely to be happy and content with what life offers them in places like this.

And if it’s Saturday once again….
