Walking the poodle – it’s something we do almost every day, and since we recently moved to Vermont, we needed to map out a new daily route.
Walks here are very different than in Somerville. Instead of navigating cars, stoplights and crosswalks, we now adjust our path for deer and haggard, cheerful hikers on the Appalachian Trail (which runs down our road). It’s hard to imagine two places with more different than the Boston metro and Norwich, Vermont – where we now live and where Tom starts Dartmouth’s MBA program in T-minus 9 days. We live in a large, converted barn, next door to a home built in 1805…on a street filled with homes situated on lots the size that Boston residents can only dream of.
More updates to come soon, but for now, here are some shots from our walking route. It features barns, omens of the winter soon to come (read: wood piles), and fields full of green. It takes us 25 minutes to do the loop from our house down Hopson Road and through Main Street, Norwich. Charlie the poodle and I will soon be on our own to do the route when Tom starts orientation this Monday.
So, come visitors and join us on our walks before the weather hides the green and covers us with snow! And finally, we got a new neighbor today. Her name is Nell, and she is an 8-week-old black lab. Charlie, Tom and I are smitten as are her owners.
More to come!
