From Springfield to Brattleboro - more than a simple jaunt but not quite a staycation.

Scenic Vermont Rt 5 offers delightful simple pleasures when driving for the hell of it South of Springfield, Vermont, Official Home of the Simpsons, and with the promise of all that is exotic in a city like Brattleboro, Vermont, waiting to entertain and delight, who could resist a motor excursion with camera in tow?

Stopping along the way one has a fine view of the full and slow Connecticut River, in Putney, Vermont.

In Brattleboro, Vermont, the San Francisco of the East Coast, the busy crowds of shoppers and tourists fill the hilly sidewalks, a veritable parade of fashion and style. One might ask, is there more than one individual in this crowd wearing a sensible cardigan, in the first week of July? The answer would have to be a resounding "Yes!", there is nothing quite like Nature's Own Air Conditioning!
