I will sing a new song unto thee, O God, upon a psaltery and an instrument of ten strings will I sing praises unto thee. Psalm 144:9

This is an actual train depot and there was a steam locomotive and a private rail car you could walk through. I had to think of my father and how he would have loved this exhibit as it was authentic!
We returned to the Lodge just in time for another rain shower so I didn't get to do the hike to the family chapel and any more exploring at the Trapp Family Lodge. But I enjoyed sitting in an Adirondack chair on the balcony outside my room and watching the rain! Again we enjoyed an excellent meal in their restaurant.
The next morning we said good bye to the Lodge and headed to the Vermont Quilt Festival. It was wonderful, like a mini Houston Quilt Festival. I really enjoyed looking at all the quilts and did some shopping. At 1:30 p.m. we were back on the bus and made a brief stop at Quechee Gorge and then we were on to Woodstock Vermont. I spent most of the hour we were there in the post office shipping 3 (yes 3) large flat rate boxes home with all the treasures I had purchased, just a note here in my defense that most of the other people on the tour were shipping home several boxes, too! I managed to snap a few pictures and eat a cup of ice cream before it was bus load time again.Quechee Gorge, and yes, Chicken Little walked out on the bridge and made this picture.
A hotel in Woodstock (would love to stay here someday!)
A two hour ride brought us to our final hotel in Nashua New Hampshire. This evening we had our farewell dinner and a show and tell time (as if we hadn't been doing show and tell all week!).

This is part of the lodge, it is too big to get into one shot and still have any detail visible. And, there was no air conditioning in our rooms (no need for it).
This garden provides flowers for the hotel and vegetables for the restaurant.

Apparently he had been wearing this for a while since he had pee-peed on the bed and when I got him out he ran to the water bowl and drained it.

Nubble Light House (only accessible via a basket suspended over water)
Roses growing along the Atlantic Ocean. Many were wild varieties with nasty thorns!

A New England home (& yes, they all looked very much like this one!)
