September 25, 2012 – It was sunny this morning, a bit chilly at first, but getting warmer as the sun rose higher in the sky. We took a nice drive in the countryside, admiring the changing leaves and shocks of standing corn drying in the fields. We passed hikers walking along the road near the Appalachian trail and parked by the lake in Boiling Springs. We decided to eat at Caffe 101 and dined al fresco, soaking up the sunshine while ducks and geese swam on the lake. 2 eggs, home fries, sausage and baked blueberry oatmeal made for a very good breakfast. We had the outdoor dining area to ourselves and sat at our table enjoying the sights. Goodbye to summer, hello to autumn.
