The Strizzle

Vermont Memories, #2

When I visited Marina in Vermont last fall, she was just getting ready to move into a converted airstream trailer, and we spent some time searching for a good wood stove to keep her toasty in the winter. This year, she had just moved out of "The Strizzle" and back into a downtown Montpelier apartment. We still spent a good deal of time at The Strizzle, doing some chores and letting the dogs sniff horse poop and run off leash. I am so impressed that Marina was able to live here for a whole year-- no kitchen, no plumbing, no electricity-- but it does have quite a beautiful view. I think my best friend is really tough and brave.

Wow, that looks really beautiful and small and unique and maybe cold? I hope she stayed warm for the year. Tough and brave indeed!
