Whistlestop Corner Restaurant

Clarendon, VT - Today I took another trip to Vermont. The boys and I went to Rutland and visited with a few blogger buddies. On the way back I took Route 103. I passed this restaurant and then turned around because I thought it looked kind of cool. I decided to have something to eat, so I went in.

The restaurant is in the former East Clarendon Train Station. I was told this is a place frequented by hikers from the Appalachian/Long Trail which crosses Route 103 just south of the restaurant. Hours are Tues - Thurs 6:30am to 3:00pm, Fri. - Sat 6:30am - 8:00pm, Sun 7:00am - 3:00pm. Hours are subject to change due to weather conditions so it is suggested you call ahead 802-747-7070.

In 1998 a caboose was converted into a Ice Cream Caboose; Ice Cream is served there is the Summer, there is seating in the Caboose and on the deck outside.

Here are a few photos from inside the restaurant; looking toward the lunch counter.

This is looking in the dining section. As you can see, the walls are old bead board.

This was my lunch, one of the specials for the day, a Chipolte Burger, tomato, onions, cheddar, on a substantial bun. The burger was hand made, not one of those pre-made skinny burgers, cooked to order. There was plenty to eat, no walking away hungry here.

Living Machine Green Waste Management

Last week we took a trip up to Vermont. We stopped at the first rest area on Route 89, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Rest Stop. In the back of the rest area is this room containing these tanks with plants growing from them. These together make the Living Machine Waste Management System. All the waste water from the rest stop gets purified in these tanks.

This is one of the tanks, each one has a particular job to do in the process.

There is a walkway around the room so you can see each tank, also there are signs explains the each process is; this sign give the system layout.

Doggie Snow Path

Yesterday we had a few feet of snow, to help my dogs go to the place where they do their "Business", I shoveled a path. This is Thatcher coming down the path.
