Our neighbours Rob and Ellen make an annual fall trek to Meaford to buy Rob's favourite apple --- the Russet which is not available in the local grocery store. Ed, Zaph and I went along for the ride and to buy apples for pies and sauce. As usual Ed brought his GPS with him so we stopped and geocached along the way. The trip to Meaford should take 1 1/2 hours, after 2 hours we had made it to Flesherton, about the half way point. Given our rate of travel we decided we had better find food in Flesherton. Lucky for us there's an amazing dinner in Flesherton called the Flying Spatula. It looks like a little hole in the wall by a gas station but the food is amazing. This restaurant was featured on the television show "You've Gotta Eat here".

Made it to apple country.

One of several apple farms selling their wares. I bought a bushel basket of Macintosh apples --- they made great apple sauce.

Each fall, Meaford decorates with scarecrows. There were lots of them all around town, some hanging from light posts other sitting comfortably enjoying the day.


After finding 10 geocaches we rewarded ourselves with a trip to Dairy Queen ... best part of geocaching for me.
