Columbus Day Weekend

Another beautiful Columbus Day weekend, although it was a lot colder than this time last year.



The trees aren't quite at their peak colour yet, but still pretty.


What are these? Anyone know? Very pretty (but the fruit does make a mess on the ground!)


Lots of good food. The fries were even served with salt and vinegar :-) DH went on to have a kielbasa grinder (hot sandwich) after this.


Fried dough with maple cream - a tradition not to be missed, despite how unhealthy it is! Still, sharing makes it a little less bad for you!


Lots of other food offerings too. It was a bit cold as far as I was concerned for sno-cones or ice cream, but the blueberry cobbler was outstanding!


Reminders that we really were out in the country!


There were lots of wonderful craft stalls. These glass pumpkins are sold at this festival every year and I always think about buying one and then never do. Maybe next year! Without a lot of restraint, it could have been a very expensive day. It was nice to see how many of the crafters were people we know.



As always, it was a good day out.

I'm glad the trees haven't peaked yet - heading up to Connecicut next week for some leaf-peeping. Here in Long Island, they are only just starting to turn...

Yummy!! Beautiful photos! I so want to do one of those fall foliage tours to see the leaves changing.

I think the tree with red fruit is a Strawberry Tree. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strawberry_Tree
