Drive to Dyn’s

According to the weather reports on the morning news as well as my own observations, today was the pick day of the week to take a scenic ride. I had meant to spend the day cleaning the house but impulsively took a little time out to drive to Dyn’s Cider Mill in Richfield Springs, NY.

It was a lovely drive. I saw a lot of color but, alas, did not pull over and take any pictures. I took several at Dyn’s but could not tell how well they turned out, because the sun was so bright.

An evocative shot, with the door ajar, or do I flatter my photographic abilities?

When I pulled into the parking lot, a couple was enjoying what looked like an iced coffee (in a rare moment of circumspection, I did not ask) on the porch. When I went to take a picture of the front, two ladies were coming out. I waited till they were out of the frame.

A wider view.

I took two shots of the front and cannot decide which I like better, so I include both. Inside I bought Dyn’s Popcorn, which my main reason for going there, and maple syrup from Shaver-Hill Maple Farm in Harpersfield, NY. As a result of listening to too much Roger Miller as a child, I insist on calling it Maple Syrple.

At the counter, I got hot cider and a brownie to bring home for Steven. For myself I hesitated between an carrot cake cupcake or a pineapple bar, ultimately deciding on the latter. Yum!

My view as I ate my treat.

I was going to sit in my car to enjoy my treat, but the other couple was leaving as I came out, so I sat on the porch. I took one more picture before heading out.

Why have I not purchased a pumpkin yet?

I enjoyed the scenery on my ride home, too. I plan to pop a bowl of that popcorn to eat while watching Halloween movies one night soon. For more information on Dyn’s Cider Mill, you can visit their website, http://www.DynsCiderMill.net.
