ADVENTURES IN APPLE PICKING

6:00 PM


Happy Friday Guys! And also happy national coffee day! Before college, I couldn't even stand the smell of coffee, but being pre-med change my tastes. I've always been Starbucks girl, but lately, I've been loving McDonald's McCafe. Normally I get their mocha or caramel frappe, but last month they rolled out a whole new line with Americanos, Caramel Macchiatos, and even a Pumpkin Spice Latte! And no offense to Starbucks, but I'm cheap and McDonald's is advertising their coffee for $2!

Anyway, in today's post, I wanted to talk last weekend's apple picking trip in the NC Mountains. This was my first time apple picking, but I've been wanting to go for years, and finally made the trip to SkyTop Orchard in Flat Rock, NC. It's a 2-hour drive from Charlotte, but worth it! The orchard is HUGE and so family-friendly. I will admit it got very crowded, but because of the size of the orchard, I never felt like I was on top of anyone.



 





There were so many apple trees and I never realized the variety of apples there are! SkyTop has a list of available apples on their website if you're looking for a particular type!



I wore my favorite new plaid top from Target!


My friend Alexis came with me on the trip!





This basket seemed small at first, but it held half a bushel of apples...that's nearly 20-22 lbs!
And we carried it throughout the whole orchard...my arms were so sore the next day!

Apple Cider Donuts! (why I really made the 2-hour drive
