Travel Tuesday: Barre, Vermont
Hope Cemetery in Barre, Vermont has some amazing monuments like this soccer ball dedicated to the memory of a young 13-year old soccer player who died 29 years ago.
Also engraved on the ball are the words: "There is no room for second place. There's only one place and that's first place." I'm sure this is the feeling of all the World Cup competitors.
I was told by a local that each gravestone has a story behind it and that the stone carver usually had some kind of personal connection with the deceased. The gravestones are all carved from Barre (light)
Some of the finest memorial designs and granite craftsmanship are on display here. It's definitely worth a visit or three.
Porch Fest 2018: "Revival" started things off on this Marion Street veranda. A few rain drops did not dampen spirits of this ...
A late winter snowstorm named "Stella" is due to bear down on the Northeast Tuesday!
After today's snowfall, the sky took on a watercolor glow of pink, purple and blue. It was a winter wonderland once again.
From atop Penn's Hill, Abigail Adams and her young son John, could have heard the women chanting in Boston today.
