Thread Name: Where are you?
Subject: RE: Where are you?!
Bigchuck, I too am a native Vermonter (sixth generation) who only recently moved away and will surely be back. My mom grew up in Rutland and my grandparents lived there til they died, so I spent a lot of days down on Seabury Street, though I grew up in & around Northfield and Montpelier. Still have lots of second and third cousins there--Losebys & Davises, mostly. Susan A-R. who hasn't yet responded to this thread is another native Vermonter, who grew up in Randolph and lives in Montpelier now. (But probably you know her? Vermont is such a small place.)

As for where I'd like to be, well, my heart sure pines for the summit of Camel's Hump in the summer, with the red sun going down behind the smoky blue Adirondacks and the granite still warm beneath me . . . or swimming in those cold clear spring-fed waters of Curtis Pond or Number Ten . . .

Of course, Scotland would do nicely too.

And I've always wanted to visit New Zealand.

And then there's the Pont d'Espagne in the Pyrenees.

Sigh. But Minneapolis is pretty good for right now.
