Looking up!

I've been enjoying looking up and seeing the golden leaves against blue skies!  My son has a few days off so we've been out and about enjoying the weather.

Yesterday we walked along a river trail that led to an estuary. It was absolutely glorious ~ the signs, sights, and smells of autumn ~ just beautiful.

Just a play on words here (trunk-truncation) ~ the estuary is very well cared for and is an amazing source of enjoyment for all, including the wildlife, stewards and visitors.

After this special time, we decided to drive south for a return trip to the Cidery! After all, it is apple time. (I've made a big batch of applesauce myself, and will have to make a pie or two with my remaining apples). But, in the meantime, why not eat pie I didn't make ;)

More  to come soon ~

  1. I agree with you -- those yellow leaves against blue skies is just gorgeous.

    We're having weird weather at the moment: hothothot, rainy, muggy, thunder. So some of it feels like fall... ;-)

    Happy apple-eating!

  2. Hi Nikki ~ I'm hoping to have more opportunities to take photos of the changing leaves against blue sky! It's a bit cloudy today, though. I've been noticing the strange weather patterns across the US and the variety of temps and conditions ~ strange indeed! Apples are so good anytime, but especially when they are freshly picked and crunchy!

  3. Seeing those truncations reminds me of the sunken forests just off the east coast of England.

    Looked a very nice eating place - at least you know when it's your turn to be served ;)

  4. You've put me in such an apple mood. I can't get any freshly picked, but I may have to get me some very soon!

  5. The sunken forests sound interesting, John. I'll see if I can find any photos of them on the internet. I haven't spent much time on the east coast of England, at least not that I can remember - possibly as a child. I should have taken a photo of the entrance to the restaurant...I think the doorway and window in the photo was on part of the work area, but is misleading now that I think of it! It's such a great place to wander around. Yes, the dog is a great indicator of 'your meal is served!' ;)

    Hi again, Nikki! Good luck in your search for apples and hope you get some crunchy ones ;)

  6. Lucky you as it's been dull and wet here the past few days!
    Your river trail walk sounds and looks wonderful.
    I like apples, as they are or in pies! Flighty xx

  8. Sorry to hear the weather has been wet over there, Flighty, but I do believe you have had a nice day or two recently. Yes, it was a lovely walk. I know you love eating an apple (the whole thing!) and who doesn't enjoy apple pie! Yum...
