A walk through Shelburne Museum

Shelburne Museum, just a stone’s throw away!

I shot this video back in autumn of 2008, but just found it today in some backed up files. I think it was around the time I bought my high definition camcorder and was anxious to try it out. At the time, I was lucky enough to live directly across the road from the Shelburne Museum in a home with a million dollar view.

With a new video camera in hand and Shelburne Museum just a short walk away, could there possibly be a better place to break in my new camera? I think not. As you watch the video, please note that I wasn’t used to it. Too much zooming and panning, etc. Anyway, it’s great view of the museum in all it’s glory and probably the last time you will see the ducks near the carriage barn. Apparently, the task of taking care of the ducks became a bit too much of a task for the lady who was feeding them. Oh well.

I didn’t go inside many of the buildings in this video. I think I have another one where I do venture inside though. However, I did go inside the Dutton House (as I would on every visit) hoping to catch a glimpse of the supposed “ghost” that haunts the structure. No such luck, especially with a video camera on hand.
