Our September Ritual

On Sunday, we took part in our yearly September ritual – visiting the Burrville Cider Mill for apples, cider, and apple cider donuts.  As always, we had to visit the beautiful waterfall in back.  The smell of the cider press and donuts was intoxicating!  And yes… we shared some of our donuts with Bee.  That either makes us the best parents or the worst…  I haven’t decided…

After that, since it was such a gorgeous day, we went to Sackets Harbor for a picnic near Lake Ontario. It was relaxing just to be there next to such a lovely body of water.  Another ADFer recently blogged about making pilgrimages to various Great Lakes; she refereed to them as “ladies of the lakes.” There’s certainly a lot of divine energy there.  Bee had fun visiting the different trees in the park.  We said hello to the ancestors at the battlefield monument.  We also met a lovely butterfly.  Summer lingers, but autumn is definitely coming into power.
