When will I learn to bring my camera with me all the time?
Today I drove over to Apple ville. No, that's not really the name of the place. There was not really a name for where I was at. There was an add in the paper for straw bales for only 1 dollar. So I drove there to get some. I mean, only a buck? That's pretty cheep. I use them for the goat pen for bedding.
The place that was selling the bales was called " Bushel and a peck" it's a apple orchard. I passed about 5 other orchards getting to the place. I did not end up buying any bales. He was using them for his maze and they were moldy with all the rain and you don't want that in your goat pen. But I did end up buying a big bag of apples. I was the only costumer there at the time so he would slice me a apple sample and tell me all about it. I bought a bag called Cameo. They are nice and crisp. I think a crisp apple is more important to me then flavor! I can't abide a mushy apple. I see some apple deserts in my coworkers life.
On the way home, about 5 miles from my place I saw a black bear run across the road. My 1st thought was " That's an odd way for a Newfoundland to run" that's when I realized that it was not a dog but a small black bear.
But the reason why I wished I had my camera was that when I was over in Apple land it was just beautiful. Rolling hills and apple trees. I think come spring time I will have to go over there and check it out when the tress are covered with blossoms.
