As our bus headed north out of the parking lot, some began guessing where the destination could be. We ended up in Bennington, Vermont for a day of activities. Our first stop was the Bennington Monument. George and I had been here before, but it had been many years.
We saw a few moose on our Vermont travels.
Just a unique plant.
Next we were taken to Bennington Potters where we received an interesting tour of the factory.
And then of course, a visit to the gift shop:
This was followed by a delicious lunch at the Publyk House. So yummy!
Our final stop was the Apple Barn. First they gave us a bus tour of their vast orchards and beautiful views of the mountains. We were shocked to learn that Vermont law does not allow them to pick up the dropped apples (which we saw many). They have to leave them.
And then we were treated to apple cider donuts, cider (cold or hot mulled) and we were all tempted by the goodies for sale in the store.
Thus ended the Barkhamsted Seniors attack upon Bennington, Vermont. It was a great day, but I cannot leave you without sharing some of the gorgeous flowers and autumn arrangements that we saw today. I love this time of year!
