A Beautiful View
First of all, let me just say I've never heard of "leaf peeping" and I think that any kind of "peeping" sounds creepy. But apparently that's what folks in New England call driving around looking at fall foliage.
On Saturday we did more than foliage fondling. We went apple picking with some generous-with-their-friendship-and-their-car neighbors. And after an early afternoon at Applewood Orchards (near Warwick, NY) we headed into town to eat.
Before hitting the Harpoon Bay Clam Bar I peeped a pumpkin ice cream even lovelier than the view from atop "Mt. Peter" while stopped at Bellvale Farms Creamery. Such a thickly rich, slightly spicy creaminess was perfect for the early fall day. Open through December!
