A few weekends ago, my boyfriend came up to visit me and we explored the town I work in (which is about 15 minutes from my house). Even though I pass these places everyday on my drive to work, it’s still fun to go to local museums, stores and restaurants and getting to introduce someone to these places. Plus, now that I have a DSLR, it’s always fun to take photos of anything and everything.
First we visited the Bennington Monument, which is located in Bennington, Vermont. It is the tallest structure in the entire state of Vermont and commemorates the Battle of Bennington, a battle that lead to the turning point in the Revolutionary War. You can actually go inside it and climb stairs to the top, but it wasn’t open on the day we visited it.
After this, we continued the historic tour (and I don’t even like history all that much!) and visited the Bennington Museum. It is the largest art and heritage repository in southern Vermont, and houses diverse collections reflecting the history of early Vermont and areas of New York and Massachusetts.
Good old Abe Lincoln. Not sure what else is going on in this photo, but you can be sure that I thought the naked boy’s butt was funny!
Measuring how tiny my hands are in comparison to the statues. And yes, that is my natural curly hair (for those who always ask!)
Have you ever been a tourist in your own town (or a nearby town)?
