Burlington to Montpelier…


After our great dinner in Burlington we decided to delay our departure to find a good breakfast stop- and once again the “Little town that Could” didn’t disappoint: The Skinny Pancake, by the lake was another great discovery, all local, ethical and (if you exercised some moderation when ordering) healthy!
We drove around the unfashionable North Burlington which is experiencing a renaissance thanks to the local ethnic and artistic residents- isn’t it so often that way when an area blossoms again?
Time to head off again, we drove through the midst of Vermont, all rolling hills, mountains and small towns, each one trying to be more quintessentially “Heartland America” than the last.
As the early (4:15) dusk drew in we arrived at Montpellier, notable for being (in a land of superlatives) America’s smallest state capital- not a bad boast for a town the size of Colac, for those of you playing back home in Geelong!
