During the cold winter months, I often spend time looking through old photographs for hidden gems that I may have overlooked before. Usually they're travel shots from the previous year.
I found a few of those from a visit to Woodstock, Vermont last fall. If you haven't been to Woodstock, just picture a typical charming, quiet little New England town, and you've got it.
We weren't there long - we were passing through on the way to New Hampshire - but while there we strolled around town, taking in the atmosphere. Part of that atmosphere included the Woodstock Inn, a gorgeous historic and stately resort inn in the heart of town.
I only grabbed a few shots while there. But I thought these three images captured the relaxing atmosphere.
A sunny day lights up an interior staircase...
Bicycles waiting to be used...
A relaxing front lawn...
I generally stay away from posting travel "snapshots". But I thought these photos captured a warm, relaxing feeling that feels good to look at - now that it's cold, gray, and snowy outside.
Six more weeks 'till Spring.
P.S. Just to be clear, I'm posting these images because I'm a big fan of New England. But that feeling does NOT extend to a certain professional football team in that area. 'Nuff said.
