Apple Picking

My friend Ariel organized apple picking at Westward Orchards.  We arrived right around noon, so we all grabbed lunch there – caramel apples for Ariel, sandwiches for Lupe and Sean, donuts for Hans, and apples and cheddar for me; all delicious!

Hans and I split a bag for picking, determined to find the best and shiniest (read: most inaccessible) apples. It took a bit of diving in (and a little bit of acrobatics, much to everyone else’s amusement) but we were very happy with our harvest!

The colors were so bright and pretty!

A few of the apples that littered the ground under the trees, which made picking a little more interesting.

 All in all, a fantastic lunchtime excursion! Happy fall, everybody!
