Day 4 – We started making our way east, stopping at several places along the way that could be found in my 1000 Places to See Before You Die book. The first stop was Shelburne Farms, a very neat farm with lots of acreage, several animals to be petted, and supposedly a really cool inn on the property. We didn’t have enough time to tour the inn ourselves, but Patricia Schultz raves about it in her book.
When we got to Shelburne Farms, we purchased a ticket to the Children’s farm and hopped aboard the wagon shuttle to get there.
Next, we drove north to South Burlington, VT and stopped by the famous Al’s French Frys there. IT WAS GOOD! Then, we stopped for some more health food; the AMAZING Ben & Jerry’s. I have steered clear of this ice cream in the past because of its price, but let me tell you…no more…this stuff is the best of the best. And the ice cream sample from the tour, fresh from the factory….YUM.
After a fun day of petting animals and tasting fries and ice cream, we were tired! Eating is hard work, people. We ended Day 4 at our hotel in Lancaster, NH. Coos Motor Inn – a very clean and surprisingly inexpensive hotel.
