More apples and a mini vacation

As the nice fall weather continued, we decided to head back out to St-Joseph-du-Lac for another round of apple picking. It's an inexpensive activity and Jules seems to like it.
Jules quite enjoyed the animals in the small barn
And of course, picking apples on low-hanging branches

The following weekend, Alex and I planned a short getaway to Ogunquit, a final little trip before the new baby arrives. Luckily, my mom was available to watch Jules for the weekend. We hit our usual spots: Ogunquit beach, the Maine Diner, Portland Maine, Portsmouth New Hampshire, the Marginal Way and a few others. It was a lovely and relaxing weekend, but over too soon.

Of course, there were a few neat cars to be spotted (among the SUV's and Crown Victorias) if one really looked.

And finally, a couple of spots from Montreal:

This Dodge Aries is just like my first car, except for the colour and hubcaps. I am surprised to see this one still running and in such good shape.
