Apple Picking

Saturday we went apple picking at Niven's Apple Farm. Who would have thought that I missed climbing trees and being a kid.... We had such a great time and the weather was almost perfect. Could have been a little cooler, but it was fun all the same. We had quite the group that went... Adam, Ramon, Paul, Betsy, Brittany, Melissa, Dev, Jeremy, Jennifer, Scott, Allison, and me. Here are some photos from picking apples. The trees were pretty picked over but we still managed to pick 1.5 bushels of apples.

After picking apples it was off to downtown Greenville to grab a bite to eat. After dinner at Barley's we wandered around town doing a little shopping. We then headed to Spill the Beans. Just outside in Falls Park was this great waterfall. I ended up just standing on the bridge for a bit listening to the water. It was so calming and ended the day perfectly. A wonderful relaxing day. Just what I needed. Love the fall and awaiting the colors....

Productivity vs. fun

....and productivity won the day. No kayaking fun, but I will get the kayak in the water before the week is out. At least I can look forward to apple picking on Saturday.

The beginning....

After reading everyone elses blogs I finally decided to join the band wagon. Since I now live in the middle of nowhere and with barely any contact with all of it goes!

I am living in Clemson, SC working on my PhD at Clemson University in the Bioengineering department. I love the area and the school and really do not regret my decision to travel half way down the country just for school away from everything and everyone I know. I miss home and the great lakes, but have made some great friendships already...

I'm playing hookie from campus tomorrow to go kayaking on Lake Hartwell. Hopefully I can get some great shots of the area to post.

Miss all of you!!!
