Sun is out again. I feel it gives us a nice start when the warmth of the sun is shining in.

There were a lot more resort and international cancellations last night. Schools here is Vermont are closed until next school year which starts here in late August.

There is more of the Caribbean Island Resorts shut down and the cruises have extended the shut down. Please call me if you have any concerns about a trip.


Yesterday, I gave you some of my favorites to look at. Today I am going to give you a "heads up" on my future plans, "What I am up to".


The Panama Canal is definitely on the top of the list. The question I have now is do I want to start in California or NY or Florida? I feel right now I would want the LONG flight in the beginning starting out in CA, cruise and then return home to Vermont from FL or NY. The next place I want to explore is The Erie Canal, a canal in New York, United States that is part of the east–west, cross-state route of the New York State Canal System. It is a 363-mile waterway that connects the Great Lakes with the Atlantic Ocean via the Hudson River in upstate New York.

Of course, I will be checking out the wineries in my travels also.


The next one is really appealing to me.


La Sucrerie de la Montagne offers the opportunity to stay in the middle of the woods, at the top of Mont Rigaud, Canada, all year round. You can choose from four (4) typical yesteryear cottages that have their own welcoming personality.

Their menu, based on wild meat from Quebec will surely satisfy the lavish gourmet and the finest palate. Sea-pie, bison paupiettes, sliced deer, wapiti or bison meat, pheasant, wild meat terrines or rabbit saucisses, our menu will certainly bring out the beast in you. Root vegetables, pot herbs, wild rice, will follow our delicious maple mignardises. I definitely plan on taking my "back woods" family and friends with me. By the way, their desserts and entertainment are top notch.


The final one today, is Vermont State Historical Sites.


Vermont State Historic Sites join together with a number of other museums, attractions and state parks to enliven your visit to Vermont and celebrate Vermont’s diverse historical, cultural and recreational attributes.

Vermont Historic Sites, invites us to explore our partners’ sites to experience all Vermont has to offer, from Billings Farm & Museum in Woodstock to the Rokeby Underground Railroad site in Ferrisburg, the new Barre-based Vermont Archaeological Heritage Center to Hildene, the Colonial Revival estate and home of Robert Todd Lincoln in Manchester. You won’t want to miss the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum or Shelburne Museum on the shores of Lake Champlain nor the hiking trails or refreshing lakes of Vermont State Parks. There’s everything from zip lines and canopy tours, to winery tours and maple sugar houses – suffice it to say you’ll find a memorable experience awaits from border to border.


I also would explore the Northeast Kingdom with my travel group. I lived there for 13 years and know that there is a lot to enjoy there.


I will keep you posted on dates and itineraries as we get closer to being able to "get back on the road"


From our home to yours, we hope and pray for our healthy future.
