Visiting Easton Friends Meeting

Sunday, September 25: Because the balloon festival essentially ended when all the balloons had flown, we were to leave the camping area by 10 AM. That gave me lots of time to go find this historic Quaker meetinghouse, and join them for worship. Built in 1788 to replace an earlier log building that had burned (and where the “Indians” joined in worship when they found the Quakers unarmed; see below sign), this building is used June through September, and in the winter they use a smaller, brick meetinghouse that is easier to heat.

After visiting for a while, as I headed back to my Roadtrek I spotted these mushrooms. Obviously something thinks they are edible – but I wasn’t going to take chances!

It looks like Job S. Wilbur’s stone made a good table.

      1. And if you return to Vermont, get in touch – I was sorry to miss you when you were here last! Especially if you need a local support vehicle. But maybe only for a meal or something.
