It's been a while since our last post. We've wanted to get online to post, but we need a computer to do so. Vermont has perhaps the lowest per capita supply of chain motels in the country, and the mom-and-pop motels and B&Bs we've stayed at for the last three weeks just don't have computers sitting out in a lobby. The next choice is libraries, but we usually arrive in town about the time the library closes for the day, and in any event we're not exactly in a literary mood just after climbing off the bike. We spent a week at Lake Willoughby and thought, great, we'll go to the library in either of the two towns 8 miles away, only to find that they were on M-W-F schedules, and the only days that worked for us to go there were Tuesday and Thursday.
Today however is a shorter day and we've found a library open at the town we scheduled as a lunch stop, so today we'll catch up on our first week and a half in Vermont, and next blog entry -- whenever we can find another library -- we'll tell you about wonderful Lake Willoughby.
They also helped us find some good hiking on our off-the-bike day, including an hour-long walk in the woods that brought us to this swing bridge over Otter Creek.
