We went for a little tour with Justin, Lindsey, and Cameron. They have a Harvest Festival in this area and one of the things they do is the Pumpkin People...
Entering the town of Kentville.
The pumpkin people are all over town!

Riding on a pony!
Invasion of the pumpkin head people!
There is a new theme each year, and this year it's Pixar.
Then we went and picked up some fruits and veggies. We find it very odd that if you go to the big Atlantic Superstore that apples of all varieties cost between $1.49 and $1.99 per pound. This is ridiculously expensive for apples! Especially considering that most of them are grown right here in the Annapolis Valley. Some however are imported from other countries such as Chile. It doesn't make any sense to me. However, Lindsey knows of a place where you can buy delicious locally grown apples for only $0.88 a pound. Why would anybody pay $1.49 when they can pay $0.88?

Still lots of fall colors in the trees here.
So today, we're heading for Ottawa. Not sure when you'll hear from us again, although we'll try and update our facebook fans whenever we have internet along the way. We're taking the VIA Rail train from Halifax to Ottawa and it leaves at noon today. Doesn't arrive in Ottawa until tomorrow at 6:00pm, and we'll be spending a few hours in downtown Montreal along the way.
We love travel days, so stay tuned!
