The occasion was for a book signing by a California author that wrote a child's book and books were purchased and signed for our grand children. We took advantage of having lunch at the deli which was very good.

Walk the grounds, see the birds, have ice cream, popcorn, pick apples, shop in their store for unique and not so unique items, eat lunch at their sit down deli, have dessert, have coffee or tea or just people watch. A healthy way to spend a couple of hours.

Word of warning to Midwesterners: this course is up and down so is more physically tasking, but not excessively, than the courses you are... More
