road trip back in time

For May's 25th Anniversary celebration hubby & I 
hopped in the car Friday, alone together,  & headed "back in time".  

First stop....a rambling old antique shop where 
if they don't have it you probably don't need it :)  

Next, after crossing over into Vermont, we

  pulled over here & walked to the river below.

A bit further on down the road
 hubby stopped,
 hopped out, 
ran back aways 
and came back to
personally deliver
 a bouquet of fresh picked lilacs ... to me!
  Oh - if only this pic were scratch - n - stiff!

Stopped at Mildred's for lunch

before exploring inside ....

 Felt like kids in a candy store - and for good reason! ;)

Purchased some fine chocolate for the road  - 
including one to die for dark chocolate truffle the size of a small plum!

Then reversed course to head back home...

 and made one last stop here to stretch & roam in an emerald forest...

...a place where it seems the green canopy reaches high into the sky to catch and break the fall of shooting stars and usher them gently to the forest floor - and where 

 ladies leave their slippers ;)

I love your first picture of old metal parts just as much as the selection of candy! To think what all those pieces/gears/hinges did when they were new....!
It sounds like a perfectly wonderful road trip! A great celebration in May :)
