Maize Maze at Lakenheath

We’ve been in the country for nearly three weeks now… and are still homeless, ie, staying in temporary housing in Lakenheath. After commuting in and out of the city (2.5 hours each way, ugh) every day this week, I had absolutely no desire to travel back to London this weekend even though that’s supposedly “where all the action is.” SO we decided to explore a little more close to “home.” Lakenheath really is up in the countryside. Farm country. And lucky enough for us, we discovered this adorable little pumpkin patch and “Maize Maze” nearby on Undley Road. 

As you can see, I had LOTS of fun playing with my new camera… and basically being a child. This was such a wonderful, much-needed break from the city. Fall is fantastic.

Oh and P.S. – those hot donuts: TO DIE FOR.

Sweet Berry Farm, Again

I know I post pictures from this little farm in Rhode Island all the time; it’s because it really, truly is one of my favorite places in all of the world. That’s why I wanted to come here with my brother and sister for my last day in America before moving to England. It was such a weird day – cloudy, hazy, even rainy on the drive down – but we didn’t let that stop us from picking bunches of apples, feasting on banana bread, and frolicking in the sunflowers. This is one of the things that I’m definitely going to miss the most. 

May’s Corn Maze

May’s Corn Maze in Mississippi, literally down ten miles of dirt road off of the highway, as middle of nowhere as it gets.

Back to visit one of my most favorite places with my entire family. Apple picking, raspberry picking, pumpkin picking, ice cream, & frolicking in the wildflowers.
