All this talk of fall and cider donut maps brought Russell Orchards in Ipswich to mind. I had not made a visit in a while and one of our crazy castaways kind of loves those donuts, so off I went for a ride. It was a weekday morning and several families were there with toddlers and preschoolers, including our neighbor Owen! I did not pick apples, though the orchards are available for that. I do recommend bug spray as they do too because the bugs are biting out there! But it’s always a pretty spot with interesting stuff going on inside and out. I got some apple rollups, cider, cobbler and donuts……perfect starts to the fall season. It is a fun trip…..next time maybe I take GMG Jim.
