Colchester Causeway

2017 New England, Road Trip, States, Vermont

Our pursuit of Vermont and Ethan Allen history was interrupted by a delightful lunch on the patio of Bayview Bar and Grill overlooking Mallett’s Bay in Colchester followed by a wander along the waterfront just enjoying the sunshine and scenery before making our way to a little hike along the Colchester Causeway, a rails to trail tracing the route once taken by milk and butter trains. The sunshine didn’t last. Storm clouds began to gather and we trekked back to the car. Later our quest to find a restaurant where we could treat Jane to dinner was thwarted by the leaf peepers who flocked to the area to enjoy the beautiful foliage. We chose to get Chinese takeout and enjoy one another’s company back at Janes’s. And indeed the rain came. Late this evening Jane drove us back to our T@B and participated in the placing of the Vermont sticker on our map. It’s been a fabulous visit, thanks for being a great guide, Jane!
