While contemplating what I want to write about the New Hampshire Sheep and Wool Festival, life gave my darling Joe another excuse to travel and I found myself yet again in Southern Vermont (not that I complain).
Immediately I found an excuse to visit my favorite spinnery there – The Green Mountain Spinnery:
My excuse this time: I am not sure I have enough meadow yarn to finish my Dandelions Shawl! (Unfortunately they had only 4 skeins of this wonderful color and not surprisingly they sold all of them in New Hampshire but they ordered one for me from the dyer so I just have to wait.)
But, actually as the header of this post suggest, I wanted to show you today some moose we encountered on our way back:
This one was my favorite, it is made of thousands of tiny photos:
I think his name is Picture This but I nicknamed it: The Covered Bridge Moose. It caught the attention of other passers-by:
We even found one in the The Village Chocolate Shoppe:
Apparently they have a Moosefest in Bennington, Vermont these days:
When you invite a lot of moose to your town, you better take good care of them, just like they do in Bennington, VT.
This is the third time we encounter animals in a city. The first ones were penguins in Tel Aviv (Scroll down), unfortunately I couldn’t locate any photos of them, I think it was in 2000 or so. The second time was in Sedona when Margene and Smith came to visit Arizona and we found all those Javelinas in the streets of Sedona. And now the Moosefest, I wonder where and what we will find next!
