Ohh!! Definitely get Cold Hollow Cider donuts. And Cider. And Champlain Chocolates.

And Jeffersonville isn't close at all (it's 40 mins away) -but if you are up that way or want to go to the Smugglers Notch area and are craving a burger I highly recommend Burger Barn. Or if you are looking for a Montreal Smoked Meat sandwich (or really any kind of sandwich) The Cupboard Deli is right there. And if the weather is nice, go find a place to eat by the Lamoille River.

Our wings are not tired.

Cold Hollow had a really excellent looking lunch menu so I think we'll eat there.

this mess was yours / now your mess is mine

Cold Hollow had a really excellent looking lunch menu so I think we'll eat there.

We've never had a chance to eat a meal there, but the restaurant was packed when we were there, so it must be good. There are 2 separate buildings with a parking lot in between -- one is the original building, where they make the non-alcoholic cider and the donuts (GET A DONUT) (TAKE SOME HOME) and sell a lot of merch. The newer building has the hard cider tasting room on one side and the restaurant on the other.

Now I'm missing Vermont something fierce.

I'm enjoying all the Vermont love! I've only been there once, and that was a brief trip, but I am vaguely fond of the place for no real reason.

Unrelatedly, I just saw an ad for "probiotic water" and that sounds like something that could easily go horribly horribly wrong.

Vermont is really lovely. When I was a kid we went over on the ferry from NY to VT to buy booze! My dad said the taxes were less there. Of course with my dad it could be that he just liked to drive to Vermont. There were a bunch of liquor stores right on the Vermont side when you got off the ferry. Don't know if that is still the case. We did cross Lake Champlain one year in the winter and the ferry was an ice breaker, which was super interesting. Crunch crunch crunch goes the ice.

Weather is going to be mixed. Thursday rainy and 66 for a high, but Friday high of 78, which is like a super heat wave. The inn has hot tubs so I hope the rain stops long enough for me to dash outside and get a nice soak.

Bus back to the transit center in 33 minutes. We're under a heat advisory, so I don't want to walk it. Express bus home in an hour. I am thinking I will stop for dinner on the way home from the station, maybe a margarita.

Less than 4 minutes from my desk to the bus stop. For future reference.

Nice! Margarita sounds super pleasant.

I missed pool time this morning, because I had too much work to do first thing, but then my 5p meeting got canceled, so I went at 4p, yay.

I think we're finally going to start Ted Lasso tonight.

I'm missing Vermont. And a Montreal Smoked Meat sandwich. And Cider Donuts. And a creemee.

I also really want to visit the Shelbourne Museum again, one day.
