We set out as we did last year with a list of places to go. The morning started out crisp--the perfect backdrop for apple picking. Then there was a lavender farm, and lunch by a lazy river. But we didn't follow our plan to a T. Instead, we took the advice of some folks we met along the way. They led us to one of the best farm markets either of us had ever been to, and a delightful town that was new to both of us. A stop at a nursery for some plants and a pop into a local shop with the most outrageous ice cream rounded out what was a perfect day. Not the exact one we had planned--but one that turned out to be far better, thanks to the detours.
Hopefully you're enjoying the season wherever you are!
