Susan Wahlrab: Seasons

Almost encaustic in their layered density, the paintings look and feel wet from the coating of glossy clear varnish.

Her growing rapport with the youngsters, coupled with her generosity of spirit, gradually captures the heart of the stern Captain, and they marry. Upon returning from their honeymoon they discover that Austria has been invaded by the Nazis, who demand the Captain's immediate service in their navy.

Attend a comfortable dinner with detailed explanation of table settings, etiquette history, and properly managing everything from napkin to coffee cup. Gain an appreciation for the downstairs staff by decanting through a silver funnel or serving the sauce, all in a dining room which has hosted elegant dinners since before the Titanic went down. Breakfast is laid out on the sideboard with toast served in silver toast racks. Afternoon tea is served in the library. Optional activities inspired by what we've seen the Crowley's doing include riding and fly fishing to crewel embroidery and cooking lessons (chocolate truffles). Come for dinner, tea or the whole weekend and you'll never hear Lady Mary say that you're not fastidious about doing things properly.

Alasdair Fraser & Natalie Haas, Scottish Fiddle and Modern Cello

Place:Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center
Price:$20-$37
Time:8:00 pm

Email:info@sprucepeakarts.org

Alasdair and Natalie are the absolute undisputed King and Queen of Scottish music. That may sound like it’s saying a lot, but it understates their influence and talent by a country mile. They can take one ancient tune, and it will sound just like it did when it was played 300 years ago, and then, in the same set, launch into a contemporary Celtic-inspired tune that makes jaws around the world drop. Their music spans the history of the violin. You can talk about Natalie’s Juilliard training, or Alasdair’s world-renown Valley Of The Moon music camp, but it doesn’t begin to describe their influence in contemporary fiddle music. In the Celtic world, they are the gold standard. Sorry, everyone else!

Race To The Top Of Vermont
City:Stowe
Place:Mount Mansfield
Price:See website for registration fees
Time:7:30 am

Every August the North Face Race To The Top Of Vermont draws as many as 800 hikers, mountain bikers, and runners from across the U.S. and Canada to climb Mount Mansfield, Vermont’s highest peak located in Stowe, Vermont. The course climbs up the historic Toll Road, is 4.3 miles in length, and climbs 2564 ft. For some it’s all about trying to achieve a fast time up this tough 4.3 mile course. For others… they come to challenge themselves, and to enjoy the spectacular views. For non-competitive individuals, hiking is the perfect way to experience this beautiful course, enjoy the company of friends, and be inspired by their effort and yours. Either way, we promise that the Race to the Top of Vermont will be one of the most challenging and fulfilling days you experience all season long. This year the Catamount Trail Association (CTA) is excited to partner again with The North Face Store @ KL Sport as the Title Sponsor of the Race To The Top Of Vermont taking place on August 23, 2015. The North Face Store @ KL Sport has long been the place to go when looking for high quality equipment and amazing service. The guys over at KL Sport always bring their A-game and we are very fortunate to have their support.
