Beating the Heat in Vermont


Thought I’d share a couple of recent popular photos from the Instagram today. Two weeks ago, summer (finally) arrived here in the Northeast of America. So where do I flee for relief from 90 degree temperatures? Nothing beats a day spent leisurely snaking along Vermont’s scenic Connecticut River. I love to bring a box of water crackers, some creamy brie, plump grapes and my precious to-go coffee (maybe even an occasional bubbly beverage). I plop down on the flattest rock in the river, dip my feet into the icy waters and…just breathe.
