After spending the first half of our day apple picking, we drove further north to do some light hiking at Minnewaska State Park.

Autumn’s favorite activity. I’ve been waiting all year to slip into my Hunter boots and wander the orchards for farm fresh pickings.

Headed out East for some great food/drinks (oysters!), kayaking and scenery.

The best part of any trip is eating and drinking like the locals do. As a culinary region, Provence takes the cake.

No trip to Provence is complete without visiting a lavender field or two.
