What am I watching?

Seen in Burlington, Vermont, on the way to the ferry dock.  These are some of the flying monkeys of Burlington.

A few more:

Created by sculptor, Steve Larabee, to augment a Burlington business called the Emerald City, these iconic statues have found a home on top of the building One Main,  other flying monkey statues have been added to several other Burlington edifices over the years.

The best place to see them is on the approach to the Burlington-Port Kent ferry against the backdrop of Lake Champlain and the Adirondack Mountains.  They are a landmark I always look for when making the trip to and from Maine.

It’s Tuesday – is there a tattoo to go along with this post?  But, of course!

  1. I’ve only flown into Burlington… so I missed the flying monkeys, somehow. Most interesting!

    This also brings to mind that saying about monkeys and one’s nether regions… 😉

  2. but I saw them too!


    • Well, you must have been there, too!
