Very Virtuous Vermont Vacation

I just got back yesterday from a nice vacation with the Zieglers and the Culattas. We rented a neat old house on the bottom of Lake Champlain in Vermont. Had a great time! Here are some pics...
Me and Sarah
Me and Dan
Me and Turtle
Did some kayaking, swimming, hiking, eating, reading, general frolicking, etc. We also went to the Ben & Jerry's factory in Waterbury. We went through an undisclosed (ie very substantial)quantity of 'Vermont's Finest' by the end of the week! There's nothing like an ice cream trip to W.A.G.S. for a good afternoon cool-off. In addition to 67 bird species, we also saw a cool tree toad (pic1 and pic2) and a very active honey bee hive. But in the category of merry-making, nothing really compares to taking annoying pictures of Dan (pic1, pic2, pic3, pic4). Another highlight of the week was visiting one of my all-time favorite lunch places: The Park Squeeze in Vergenes. Awesome food. Really, really awesome food. So, I'm back for a week-and-a-half now before running off to Arkansas, Texas and Colorado. Cow-a-bunga everyone!
