• Waking Up in Vermont

    June 26, 2010

    I’m not going to lie, waking up in Vermont this morning was pretty sweet. I opened my eyes to gorgeous Lake Champlain right out my window. Ahhhh…

    Anne and I got our run on first thing this morning. The weather was cool, but humid, and we did 4 miles in about 35 minutes.

    When we returned to the B&B, breakfast was just about ready. It smelled so gooood!

    We enjoyed the most amazing cranberry scone made with Stonyfield yogurt.

    Coffee!

    And a goat cheese omelette with fresh basil and bacon on the side.

    Everything we ate for breakfast had so much flavor– perhaps because it was all organic? All I know is that it was very delicious!

    Time to learn about cows and organics!

    Have a great day learning about cows & organics! The B&B looks beautiful ;) and so does your breakfast. I always find that organic foods are so much more vibrant and more flavorful!

    So that’s the lake where all the chocolate comes from, haha.

    Mmmm, organic bacon. I think that would be my favorite part.

    I never realized how huge Lake Champlain is- it’s beautiful! That scone looks delicious, but then again, I’ve never met a scone I didn’t like :) Hope you have a wonderful day!

    Oooh, the only thing I know about Lake Champlain is that that’s where the eponymous chocolate company makes one of my favourite chocs, the Spicy Aztec bar. My kingdom for a flight to America…

    How delish! I swear, organic foods do seem to have more taste. Or maybe I’m just mentally psyching myself out to make up for the price hike…I don’t know. Have fun on your trip!
