And then this past Thursday, the sun broke through and we had a wonderful day. One that makes me happy to live in such a beautiful place. Jack and I grabbed our cameras and headed out to take pictures:
But now they are also selling hundreds of different kind of pumpkins and squash. I'm not sure if pumpkin carving is common here, but I know people love to cook pumpkins...and not just the canned stuff (which they don't even sell here), but whole, straight off the farm pumpkins cooked in soups, stews, etc. It's wonderful!

It was absolutely freezing at the castle so we didn't last more than 20 minutes before we had to get back in the warm car. We are planning to head back there for a Halloween party this weekend, but this time we will dress much warmer!
Here are some photos from our drive home:
