On our way back to the Inn, we stopped for some coffee/chai and an afternoon snack.  I picked up a magazine about Stowe.  Since it was such a beautiful day, we decided to sit outside to enjoy our snack and read.  The magazine mentioned a covered bridge less than two miles away.  This is our fourth or fifth visit to Stowe – How did we not know there was a covered bridge in town.  Definitely had to check it out.

This bridge is known as “Emily’s Bridge” due to the fact that it is haunted by a ghost named Emily.  There are many sad stories of how Emily died on the bridge.

Many people who have visited the bridge have experienced disturbing paranormal activity.

If you would like to know more just google Emily’s Bridge, Stowe, Vermont

Another beautiful day in Stowe.  We decided to head to Moss Glen Falls since we haven’t been there in years.  We forgot the tick spray, but a nice group of girls let us use some of theirs.  We also forgot how uneven and steep the trail was – thank goodness we had our hiking books on but should have brought our hiking sticks with us.  The trail was filled with rocks near the top

After we left the waterfalls, we decided to continue down the road.  I spotted this old cabin.  The owner was out mowing the lawn and I asked if I could take some photos.  She said sure as long as I didn’t go inside the house.  Then she said – doesn’t the lawn look great.  I thanked her and walked all around the house taking photos.  I should have asked her if she knew any history about the old cabin.

When we left Maryland it was raining and damp, then we hit construction on the New York State Thruway so it took ten long hours to get to Stowe.  When we got to Stowe, the sun was shining and it was 70 degrees.  My kind of weather.   I checked the weather in Stevensville and discovered that it was warmer in Vermont.  So it was a great night to sit outside and have dinner.  After dinner we checked the gardens at the Stone Hill Inn and it is just as beautiful as we remembered.

Hi my name is Froggy and welcome to my garden.  Several years ago when we were in Stowe, Vermont we found this neat little place called Inky Dinky Oink.  There is a 145 year old farmhouse that is a bed and breakfast and the owner also has an art & crafts building in the backyard.  I fell in love with this frog and it now sits in the garden in the front of the house so I get to see it every time I walk in the front door.  They specializes in fine art, painted furniture and fabrics, whimsical stone animals for home and garden, puppets with attitude and lots more great items.  We really enjoyed talking to the owner and discovered that she had lived in New York State for a number of years and since we are originally from New York State we had some common ground.  When we went back to Stowe a few years later we made sure to stop by again.  This time I bought a turtle and you can see part of it in the upper right hand corner.  They also offer first aid services so if we make it back to Stowe, will take the frog – his one eye needs to be touched up and the turtle has faded a bit.  If you ever make it to Stowe, stop by and you will be in for a real treat
