We went through southern Vermont yesterday and let me tell you, it is absolutely gorgeous! We visited the site of where Calvin Coolidge took the oath of Presidential Office after Harding died (Plymouth Notch, VT) and bought some yummy cheese. Here is my husband Brian by the sign post.
Here is the post office - so cute! Around the corner is Coolidge's childhood home where his father, a notary public, administered the oath. Apparently, Coolidge was vacationing in Vermont, his home state, when word of Harding's passing came. So, time being of the essence, his dad took on the job of swearing him into the office of the Presidency.
Bennington, Vermont was on our route and so we went there next. Imagine my surprise when we happened upon these artistic moose! I just loved them and insisted that my husband drive all over town looking for them (yes, he loves me...LOL!).
This mother and baby are called Love and Hope and stand outside the Chamber of Commerce building.
How cute is this Chamber of Commerce building?
This guy is probably my favorite!
Pink Tie-Dye Moose:
Van Gogh Starry Night Moose:
Indian Scenery Moose:
License Plate Moose outside of the Subaru Dealership:
Moose inside Subaru Dealership - The guys here were so nice! They came out, took a photo with me next to the moose and told me about both moose at the dealership, how they commissioned the inside one and personalized it with their kids' names on the plates, etc.
There are even more moose than these shown - this was all my family could tolerate...personally, I could have spent the day looking for them (hee, hee!).
