Lost in Vermont

After a the long flight from the UK I set off from Boston in a beast of a car with my old friend that comes with me on all my trips to the USA. Mrs TT is her name. ( Tom Tom ).
We started off well together this trip and she navigated me away under the tunnels of Boston on the road north but for some reason she kept taking me off the main route. I finally gave her a talking too as I realised it was the tolls she was avoiding. I began not to trust her and ignored her at my peril and headed further north on the 93. She kept telling me to take the next exit which after the third I did - checked the map -Hello I should have been on the 89.
Now taking her seriously I went with her instruction but look where I had taken us. Through my first covered bridge of this trip. It's so true about getting on to the backroads you start seeing (the road less travelled by and that made all the difference)
Yep you got it I did another little detour of my own and stopped of at Derry at the Robert Frost Farm. I love his poems.

I wonder what other exciting things we will be doing together.
I think quilts and fellow bloggers could be involved.

I'll keep you posted


  1. What an intrepid traveller you are! Have fun & stay safe, will will watching for your next post soon

  2. I notice there is a weight limit on that bridge Sue, heed the warning for when you come back with those cases loaded with fabric. Have fun. Looks a lovely place to be lost.

  3. I love my Tom Tom. Occasionally misleads me, but for the most part it does well. Have fun.

  4. What a lovely picture. Covered bridges like that have so much charm! I wish I could be one of the fellow bloggers and meet you in Vermont. Have a marvelous time!!

  5. The best way to travel, especially out east, I think. Have lots of fun!

  6. Hi Sue,
    I am Sooooo jealous, I went on a quilting holiday last year to Vermont and we too visited Covered Bridges, they are so lovely. I hope you enjoy the rest of your trip and don't let TT get you too lost.

  7. Sue, I'm so excited for you that you are back here in the states and headed to the Vermont Quilt Show. I shall eagerly anticipate more photos from your adventure. Travel safely ~ Sarah

  8. You are a brave woman to drive through Boston! I'm from there originally and when I return for visits I wonder how I made it to adulthood! Enjoy the quilt show...

  9. Your trip sounds wonderful - love your adventurous spirit! I too like to ignore the TT just to see if she ever gets cross with me!
