When Daylight Hours Are Short...

...And You Still Want To Play Outside...You Can Still Go Vibing!!!

The late fall and early winter allow for such short amounts of sunlight, it's even more important to get out and get your vibe on! But, planning day long adventures can be difficult unless you get up at the crack of dawn (never mind the horrible gas prices)! The solution? Backyard Vibing!A few weeks ago (yes, I have been slacking due to slacking), Mitch, Caitlin, and new Viber Pat, along with two pooches, all piled in the Vibe for some backroads excursions in Essex, Westford, and Cambridge. Using the trusty Vermont road atlas, we checked out some of the waning views of fall and stopped along the road for walks on various country roads - keeping us safe from hunters, and allowing some fresh air and exercise when we only had a few hours of daylight to enjoy.We meant to go to the soup dinner in Jericho once darkness came, but we used the wrong edition of the Burlington Free Press weekend supplement. Yet another reason is the place to look for town dinners! So, Mitch and I parted ways and had delicious warming-the-soul Italian at Hoagie's in Essex - delicious!!! Just what we needed for the cabin party we rocked out at in Underhill that night - completed by sleeping in the Vibe!The following morning, we took to slow route back to Burlington, enjoying a few country stores along the way. For some great country stores, check out the Vermont Alliance of General Stores!

Time to make some pies while the Vibe and Vibers lay low in Massachusetts! Happy Thanksgiving, Love and Light, and Peace!
