Best Weekend Getaway out of NYC: Windsor, Vermont

We spent Fourth of July weekend Tipi camping, rafting down the Connecticut River, and wandering around the Path of Life Sculpture Garden in Vermont. In other words, we out did ourselves. It was such a great weekend. I didn't want to come back to the city. Urban life has been losing its allure for me lately. It felt so good to run free for a few days without constantly being monitored with rules and regulations. Any chance I get, I find myself escaping NYC. We've played the role of city people for almost 4 years now. Might be time for something new. Really new. Out of the country new. Rob keeps suggesting London. I'm leaning towards the English countryside. Seeing my kids run around this summer is convincing me it's time. They need room to stretch out. I think I do, too. 
The garden was stunning. It's broken up into 18 mini gardens that brought us through the path of life. It sounded too "New Age" for my taste at first, but I enjoyed it tremendously.  
Keep reading for more pictures taken by my shitty camera.

The kids loved the maze. 
Moo Moo Bear is Owen's constant companion. He has a two others (Pecky the wood pecker and David the bunny) that also join him on a lot of adventures. But nothing stands between him and Moo Moo Bear. Luckily it's easily replaceable
We ate here for most of our meals. It's walking distance from the gardens and our Tipi. Delicious.  
I still can't believe we survived a 5 hr trip down the river on this raft. Every hour brought on a new adventure. We'll never forget it. 
Doesn't capture the beauty of Vermont at all. 
Here's Owen walking into the "Solitude Garden". From now on, I'm sending him to the "Solitude Garden" whenever he drives me nuts. Sounds much better than "time out". So new age! Love it. ha

    2. How to restore a broken relationship and marriage ,Love Spells That Really Work Fast

      My name is Mark Davis, my family and i live in NY USA.It was after seven years i got to discover that my wife was unfaithful to me.I didn't know what was going on at first but as she got deep in the affair with her new lover, i felt that our marriage was on the rocks.I notice that she no longer light up when i touch her or kiss her in her neck and her chest cos she really liked it when i did that, she also usually get naked in front of me but when she started seeing that guy she stopped it.I remember asking her if i have done anything that makes her feel irritated when i am around her then she gives silly excuses that she has been feeling stressed up and that she need space for a while.I know when you are been asked for space its usually because there is something fishy is going on.I hired a private investigator to help find out what was going on.And in a week time he brought me prove that my wife that i have lived with for seven straight year is cheating on me with her high school lover.I had picture of her walking out a of a restaurant with him and many other photo of them kissing in public like she will never be caught by someone that knows she is my wife.I asked myself, even when we had a daughter together she could this to me.That same night i showed her the pictures that i got from my private investigator.She didn't look at it before saying, that she is seeing someone and she know that i just found out about it.Then she said that she is in love with him.At that moment, i didn't know if to kill myself or to kill her but the button line is that if i was going to kill anyone it was going to be me cos i was so much in love with her to even think of thinking to hurt her.As time when on she asked for a divorce and got it and even got custody of our daughter and i was all alone by myself.For a year i tried all i could to get her back with the help of my seven year old daughter.Even at that all effect was in vain, i used the help of her friend but turned out all bad.I know most people don't believe in spell casting but believe me this was my last option and the result i most say was impressive.And i know it difficult to believe but A SPELL CASTER Dr brave really made my life much better cos he gave me my family back.He didn't ask me to pay for what he did for me all i was to do, was to provide the materials for the spell and believe that he had the power to help me.Like he said, he was going to do something that will make her reset her love and affection for me just as it has always been.My wife told me she woke up and realized that she should have never left me that i am all she needs.To make thing clear, her life with her high school lover was great before Dr brave castled the spell they had no disagreement on anything.The guy said it himself that why she broke up with him is unexplainable.Only Dr.Brave can do such a thing contact him to solve your problem with his email:bravespellcaster@gmail.com ,or kindly visit he website http://bravespellcaster.yolasite.com .CONTACT HIM NOW FOR SOLUTION TO ALL YOUR PROBLEMS

  7. How would London be better? Both NYC and London are fantastic places to visit, but I COULD NOT/WOULD NOT live in either place. English countryside sounds fantastic. Let those kids run free.

  8. I'd love to read about your English adventures if you go! I've always thought it would be awesome to live there!

  9. Don't bother with London - house prices have just gone up by about 28% on last year making it fookin ridiculous! But come to the countryside - it's pretty special and we'd love to have you!!

  10. Awesome. One of my husband and myself's biggest goals is to live outside the country for at least a year. Any suggestions on how to find your way their? I'm always boggled as to how people find jobs out of the country as US citizens.

  11. I would love to move to another country, but I am always thinking about the logistics (work, school, etc.). Are you worried about job hunting in another country? I am always interested in how people work out the ball/chain stuff so that they can enjoy the experience.

  14. Vermont?! I've always wanted to go to Vermont but my fam could care less. Might be a trip I need to take by myself.

    I can see you all in London. Totally jealous!

  15. The country isn't any better. It's great to visit, but soon you'll go stir crazy. Trust me. Remember, the grass always appears greener.

    Honestly, it sounds like you are going through some personal issues right now with finding out who you are. Moving will not change that inner struggle.

  18. I am Myrtice Annette Townse from TEXAS and i want to give a testimony. I was diagnosed of HIV in September 2013 by the doctor and it was like my world was crashing before my eyes. I was asked to go for a confirmation which i did and it proved positive. It was then i felt like giving up on life and my dreams of making it in life. I looked for a solution but there was no solution. I didn't want to die because i had vision and mission. It was like giving up in life because many people knew about my status and that was more killing as they avoided me thinking i could spread the virus easily. I came depressed and wanted to giving up on life.I have heard about spell casters who claimed they could do anything but don't know anything. I became discouraged.But because i still wanted to live a good life, i contacted many of them who only asked me to pay heavily for what they could not cure. The last one i contacted got away with my hard earned 3000U$$$ and just disappeared. I still did not give up. I went ahead contacting some many others till I met His Spiritual who told me that i sill have a good and bright future if only i wanted to live. I said yes and he told me what to do which i did and after casting the spell, he asked me to go to the same hospital and have another test. I am writing this with tears because i have seen and heard about people with the virus who died. I thought for a while i was going to die but here i am very strong. I went to the hospital and it was medically proven that i was HIV negative. I was like life was taken out of me for a second. My doctor could not believe this. I have really gone to hell for the past ten months but am happy that i now have my life back. I am here to say to people living with the virus, you can be cured if and only if you contact His Spiritual. This is not to deceive you but to give you a new life. Please i would not want to keep this to myself alone that's why i am here so the world will know there is still a real spell caster whose interest is seeing people happy and spiritually free from any oppression from the wicked. I will leave his email address so you can contact him and explain you ordeal to him. Meet him on his email address at (odumaspiratualtemplehouse@gmail.com) You can also contact him by phone his number is +2347055413648
