Since we only focused on our trip to Portland last week, we are dedicating this week’s post to our Sunday celebration a couple of weeks ago. As a reminder, on Saturday we ventured to Portland, Maine to explore some stunning views and scrumptious food. This day was exactly what we needed as a couple, some private relaxation to feel connected again.
Sunday was a little more festive. We made plans with a few family members to head to a fall festival at Nashoba Valley Winery in Bolton, Massachusetts. This is quickly becoming one of our favorite places to visit in the Bay State; set back from the main road of Route 117, Nashoba is located on a hill, has picturesque vines and apple trees, and of course has the rustic feel of a working winery. How can a location that has wine, beer, food, and seasonal activities like apple picking in the same place, not be charming? (If you love this place as much as we do, be sure to check out our post on Nashoba from last year).
This year we returned for an Oktoberfest, an event with food trucks, live music, and of course wine and beer. The previous day we had nice fall weather in the upper 50s, low 60s. On this day, we were shocked to find the air much cooler (in the 40s) with dark overcast skies and gusty breezes.
We decided to brave the weather, bundled up in sweaters, hats, blankets and jackets, and had blast! Overall, the weather may have been cooler than anticipated, but it doesn’t get better than spending quality time with each other and with some family.
With the full implementation of daylight savings times, we realize the amazing feelings of fall are fading. But with this change in weather patterns, we are starting to look forward to cool weather activities – as always we are looking for any fun recommendations from you all, so please share!
