Blue Ridge, Part 1
Let me start by saying their idea to have a "U Pick" apple orchard was perfect! Which was what Matthew and I set out to experience. It's just all the add-ons (bungy jumping, mini-tractor races, hay rides, folk dances, cow-milking, homemade museums of history) that made it a little overwhelming! Yes, I did say cow-milking, and YES buttercup and I got real close, real quick!
Aw..... who am I kidding, I was like a kid in a candy store! I loved Hillcrest, and I got all the fresh-picked multicolored precious fruits, "I milked Buttercup" sticker, and apple cider breath to prove it!
|These girls put on quite a river dance show!|
And no the guy in the top isn't a real guy.... I think...
|The only apple I wished was in season they didn't have-- Red beautiful delicious!|
|Height does have it's benefits!|
|Matthew made a friend in the history museum.|
|This guy wasn't feeling my kind of friendship.|
|Either was this guy!|
|Aw.... the days before Facebook when we all just hung out.|
|I got some good tips about Buttercup from the pro |
(doesn't he really seemed mesmerized by my mad milking skills!)
|How could a Saturday afternoon get any better!?!|
Oh, but it could..... to be continued.....
