Well, they were in a clearing in front of the forest; there also was a torpedo afloat in the forest. Has anyone else run across this? I don't recall any mention of it, but my friend and I got quite a kick out of it. Anyone know the story behind it???
Shortly after that sighting, we had another stellar moment...we ran across a complete double rainbow in a gorgeous field outside of Randolph. The vibrant colors were glowing all around us. The cows were happy too!
I didn't, but my friend did. She, however, has an old digital camera, and does not have the attachment to download the photos from it onto a computer. Neither of us is knowledgeable about these things, but I will get some technical advice from my kids or try to convince her to have them put on a disk so that I can share them here.
The double rainbow WAS amazing. I flagged down cars, and pointed to the rainbow...just in case they hadn't noticed it. I don't know how anyone could have missed it, though. At least they got to see a double rainbow AND a crazy lady dancing around in the road!
MY friend also took pictures of the boats in the woods. It may take a while, but I'll post them someday.
In Brookfield Village, on your left; at the entrance to the bridge is a white house. Take a look at it, water from Sunset Lake flows under its sundeck and water cascades behind the house on rocks like a lil waterfall...so beautiful! Very easy to miss!
My Explorer's Guide: Vermont by Christina Tree and Sally W. Johnson; published by the Countryman Press of Woodstock, Vermont mentions it is the only heavily used bridge of its kind in the U.S.
This guidebook also mentions a special event:
Last Saturday of January, there is a Brookfield Ice Harvest Festival:
ice cutting, ice sculpting, sledding, skating, skiing.
If visiting the floating bridge in Brookfield, don't miss the covered bridges nearby. Three are on South Randolph and six on Route 110 in the Tunbridge area. (or..if visiting the covered bridges first, don't miss the floating bridge in Brookfield)
If it sounds too good to be true, its probably . . . .
