Our dear classic New Englander friend Sharon had moved across the country to Oregon four years ago and we hadn't seen her since. We'd been used to a reunion about once every year-and-a-half. So when she said she was going to Vermont for an extended vacation and wondered if we could come up to spend some time together, we were delighted.
Sharon found rooms for us at a wonderful place: Home 2 Suites, Williston. This division of Hilton was new to us and we just loved it. Very contemporary in design, it was comfortable, clean, and fresh. The free breakfast was on the weak side, but we reminded ourselves that we were still in Covid time.
We made no unnecessary stops on the way up because we had an important event that evening. The ferry ride across Lake Champlain was beautiful and enjoyable and just long enough.
