Some of my friends and I took a day trip up to the little town of Julian, best known for their apple orchards and apple pie. It is about an hour North East of San Diego. What a perfect way to spend the first weekend in October! We did a hike around the lake and discovered some wild turkeys. Then, we went into town to get some lunch at Julian Cafe and had a homemade fresh apple pie from Mom's Bakery. After that, we went apple picking in the orchards. It was nice to get away from the rush of the city for a bit, but I am happy to be back by the ocean. It's finally starting to feel a bit like fall, now. I think I will be making my special Autumn Spice Cider soon.
