Visit to Joel Miller and Family, Vermont and Connecticut. April 4 – 17, 2019


I recently visited my brother Joel, who lives in Middlebury, Vermont, along with his son Peter and family (who live in Middlebury, as well) and another of his sons, Matt, and family, who live in Westport, Connecticut. Here are some scenes from that visit.

    When you were in Ripton, you were just miles from our house! I hope you enjoyed your visit with family and that VT treated you well.

    Fabulous photos! Enjoyed our outings here in Vermont. Especially our trip over the App Gap to Lawson’s finest brewery and of course, Worthy Burger! Hope to do this again soon. Maybe in NM next.

    Love,

    Peter
