{adventures} Northeast Kingdom of Vermont

Since I featured a Vermont wedding yesterday, now seems like an ideal time to share photos from my July vacation in Vermont.  RZ, Bailey & I, along with my Mom & her two best friends, spent one week  in the gorgeous Northeast Kingdom.  Oh, so beautiful!  & oh so much fun!!

We stayed on sweet Lake Salem in Derby, Vermont.  The sweeping lake views from our house were unbelievable:

RZ & I rented a tandem kayak for the week from the awesome folks at Clyde River Recreation.  They made it incredibly easy for us by delivering & picking up the kayak.  We thoroughly enjoyed several fun kayak trips on picturesque Lake Salem:

For swimming, we traveled to nearby glacial Lake Willoughby, a stunning lake surrounded by green mountains.  It was the perfect spot for soaking up the sun & dipping in the water.  The lake was so pretty, its clear water was so refreshing:

When the sun refused to shine one day, we headed to Jay Peak & went to The Pump House Indoor Waterpark. The lazy river had my name on it!  While I'd hoped to take the scenic tram ride to the top of the mountain, it was nixed because of the weather.  The clouds still made for some dramatic views:

A big highlight of the trip was the The Northern Star Cocktail Cruise on Lake Memphremagog, a fresh water lake that spans from Newport, Vermont to Quebec, Canada.  The whole gang went so we had great company while taking in the lovely views:

& just in case you were worried: Bailey was able to relax & unwind from the daily pressure & grind of his everyday life:

There is so much more to show & tell you but I'm trying to keep it short & sweet.  It was the perfect getaway to truly unplug & live in the moment.  Just take it slow & enjoy the views, not to mention the good company & the daily trips to the ice cream shop!
