Steve and Kirk picked up Cameron and I then we picked up Li-Wei. We stopped for donuts and atm, then were off to Oak Glen. We met Letia and Matt at the apple orchard, which was SUPER FOGGY and mysterious and wonderful-feeling. We had lunch at the restaurant – pulled pork and tri-tip sandwiches and cider and blackberry lemonade. We picked up some fun candy at the little general store next door, then bought our apple bags. We spent the next few hours wandering around the fog-shrouded fields, finding apples and walking through the corn maze. Every once in in awhile the fog would roll back and reveal the mountains towering over us, then we’d be surrounded again, like something out of ‘Brigadoon’.

We got a lot of apples from different kinds of trees, and once we had all we could carry, we drove down the road to Oak Glen Village. We got huge slices of hot apple pie with ice cream, and I got a giant cinnamon bun and an apple turnover to tide me over until Cameron turns all those apples into pies and crisps.

A completely delightful and idyllic and magical day!
