We went up to Hiram, ME today as part of a yearly sojourn involving apples and a great view of the Saco River without too much huffing and puffing. The apples this year are really scary looking, we managed to find almost a full bag of okay ones after about forty five minutes of looking… very strange. They will all go in to pies and sauce, I guess… life is so hard. 😉 Maybe it was the hot summer. In any case, we rewarded our search with two enormous ‘turtle sundaes’ from the gift shop at Apple Acres. It was a lesson in patience, mostly because there is no line and the ladies behind the counter are simultaneously making fudge, cider donuts, milkshakes and ringing people up. It was also a lesson in patience because I’ve found I’m a very busy and impatient city lady… so maybe it was just normal and I’m obnoxiously efficient.
After spooning my weight in fudge, caramel and ice cream in to my foodhole we headed to Mt. Cutler to climb it. Good idea!! A short hike, but the ice cream weight really did me in. I threw my camera, water and car keys in to my old Bean bag and headed up with J.R. I didn’t complain out loud nearly as much as I was on the inside, but it was well worth the familiar view.
