Day 9 - White River Junction/Quechee

We liked this area, but as we didn't like our hotel much we transferred to one in Quechee about five miles away.

Possibly a bit on the nice side for the Winchesters, but it took me to a happy imagination place anyway.



White River Junction is certainly making the best of the current economic situation. The place is practically boarded up.





Except for the optometrists, for some strange reason. The photo is blurry, you are not need of their services.



We also looked at the Quechee Gorge (hard to miss), which continuing the theme of understatment, is dubbed 'Vermont's Little Grand Canyon'.

That's the Ottauquechee River that is.







Next up was Quechee itself. The balloon festival was on, but as it was starting to rain, we left that for later and had a look around the expensive handmade glass place.Too expensive and delicate to bring home certainly, especially as my hand luggage was to take a crunching tumble out of the overhead locker on the plane later!

The area around was pretty:







I didn't go to the balloon festival in the end, I decided to have an afternoon relaxing. The festival was a bust anyway, it was too windy for them to fly.
