Mother's Day in Vermont

On Saturday evening, we delivered a jet engine to an aeronautics firm at the airport in Burlington, Vermont. And although we were too far away to spend the next day with family, the locale and weather made for a very pleasant day.

Again, the pics were taken from a moving truck, so I apologize for the splattered bugs, glass reflections, and absence of any shots of picturesque Lake Champlain.

The Adirondacks from the East:

Random oddities on the way to Burlington:

We couldn't figure out why hay bale sculptures of dogs were so popular:

Just over the state line on the New York side, we found a little diner that served real homemade food. I had a roast pork dinner (old-time Vermonters refer to "lunch" as "dinner", just as we did in Maine), with mashed taters and gravy, cornbread stuffing, squash, homemade bread, and pickled beets. It was like being fed by a relative. Delicious!

We parked just West of Albany to await load offers.

I hope everyone had a terrific Mother's Day. :)
