Apples in the country.




It started here in Colonial Chesterfield - Riley's Farm in Oak Glen, CA. It is one of the most beautiful places in the state.



While you may drive up in a four wheeled wonder, you move into the 1700s when you cross into the farm. We've enjoyed much fun here in the past, including a Revolutionary War re-enactment, but that is not this story.
























On this day we started with lunch at the Hawk's Head pub including music of the Colonies whilst being served by costumed maidens with British accents.


Then we headed off for our mission: picking apples.



Shenanigans and hi jinx ensued.
















And yet, we found the mother load.


And then some.




And apples, beautiful, crisp, fresh and yummy,  came home.
The pumpkins are Part 2.
