2015 New England 1000 day 3

Tuesday was a long day’s drive, taking us from Lenox MA, into NY state, back into MA then VT for our first stop. The weather, which began completely overcast, became rainy enough for wipers on all the time.

The next stage pulled us through Bennington again, then north to Grafton VT where we had lunch in a charming old inn. After lunch, despite forecasts to the contrary, the clouds parted, the sun broke through, and we had marvelous driving weather.

On the way back to The Cranwell, we stopped at Donovan Jaguar, an outfit which specializes in servicing street and racing Jags.
