A sunny afternoon at Silver Lake
Aah, the joys of early summer in Vermont. A warm sunny day, Inn chores all finished, and a few hours before guests are due to arrive at our Woodstock, Vermont bed & breakfast. Not a difficult thing for me to figure out what to do with myself- enlist a friend and make the short drive to Silver Lake State Park. For just $3 per person admission, you get to experience one of my favorite places. You can sun yourself on the grassy lawn that makes its way down to the lake, where you can go for a swim.
Another great activity at the park is to rent a little paddle boat. We did just that, and spent a lazy hour and half on the lake. In that time frame we paddled from one end of the lake to the other, looking at all of the sweet little (and some not so little) houses and cottages along the lake.
For those that have more time to spare than I did today, you can pack a picnic and make an afternoon of it. Ahhh, until next time, Silver Lake!
