This week's features:

The Seven Wonders of the Green Mountain State

"Vermont beckons the child in all of us… the child that relishes the excitement

In Season Recipe:

Lobster on the Grill

"...Lobsters, boiled at the beach in seawater, combine their sweet meat with the
briny flavor of the ocean for a perfect New England seafood treat. For most of
us, however, the opportunity to cook lobsters at the beach is rare, and most
settle for boiling them in salted tap water at home."
