Frivolous Friday: Riding the Last Wave of Summer and Kicking off Autumn in Julian

Frivolous:  carefree and not serious, lighthearted, giddy

Guess what three things happened this week in between all my portrait sessions and retouching work??? 
Well…let me tell you….

Yep, this happened #1:

This past week I rode my last wave of the season.

Why the last?

Well, partly because the water is getting cold for me…brrrr…….but mostly because my schedule is too busy!

(My pals and I usually boogie board at sunset when the beaches are empty…but this time of year, I’m photographing families and high school seniors at sunset instead!)

So here’s to an awesome summer of 75 degree water and lots of laughs…so long, boogie board, I’ll see you next summer!

Yep, this happened #2:

After I said good-bye to summer, I kicked off Autumn in Julian with apple picking!

We try to pick apples every year,  but it takes careful planning because the orchards sell out fast.

This year we scored with Volcan Valley Orchard – the apples were plentiful and DELICIOUS!

Yep, this happened #3:

And after an arduous morning in the orchard we headed into town for lunch.

And every. single. time. I go to Julian I eat the exact same thing – a “Christie’s Apple Salad” at the Julian Cafe and Bakery.

It’s one of those salads that has so many goodies in it that they spill over the edge of the plate….

You know the kind I mean?

The kind of salad that probably has more calories than a hamburger and fries?

Yep. That kind of salad!

***This one features candied walnuts, crisp, cool  apples, blue cheese sprinkles, warm grilled chicken and lemon poppyseed dressing.

Well, I guess there’s some lettuce in there too — but even with lettuce added it’s seriously pure heaven on a plate!

And I brought home an apple dumpling for hubby because I’m all about doing nice things for people – especially when they’ll probably give me a bite…  😉

It was a great day and lots of fun!  If you haven’t been up to Julian lately, head on up!

(I think the apples in the orchard are sold out – but the food and atmosphere are still plentiful!)

What can I say:  I’m Feeling Blessed!
