TRAVEL | Apple Picking x Fresh Fall Fruit

It is no secret that I LOVE picking fruit. Why? I have good memories of picking fruit in the summer as a kid with my family– that simple. Something about being driven to find the ripest and plumpest fruit appeals to me. Let’s not lie here.. I also like the feeling of the fruit snapping off its stem. Anyone else find gratification in that?

This past weekend, I went up to Clearview Orchards in Watsonville to pick some apples. I chose this orchard because their website said they have an abundance of Fuji apples (my favorite variety)! Another thing I was looking forward to was freshly pressed apple juice.

It’s a small orchard, but there are plenty of trees to pick from. My favorite part was Jethro the tortoise and that they have a guest cottage you can rent!! Let’s start the photo roll with the GOODIES I bought. 3 jars of local honey (I drink 2-3 cups of tea a day on average!), an apple popsicle, a small apple juice, and an apple turnover. That turnover was gigantic, but more importantly, delicious. Enjoy the photos!
