I had heard that the cider at Poverty Lane Orchards was fabulous, so we stopped to buy some...and a pumpkin too! This stop turned out to be my favorite stop of the day...so picturesque!
Then we moved on to King Arthur Flour to pick up a loaf of Rustique Olive Bread for dinner.
We'd eaten a packed lunch in the car on the drive, but now it was time for dessert. We stopped at our favorite gelato place, where the girls got dark chocolate (one with hazelnut and one with coffee).
And my choice was apple cider sorbetto mixed with chai caramel gelato. Yum!
We then had a leisurely stroll around the campus of Dartmouth College, admiring the historic architecture, the piles of leaves, and the scattered acorns on the ground.
The girls deposited a very content me(!) in the English literature library. Drop dead gorgeous room, old books, comfortable and cozy seating, and soooo quiet. They explored more of the campus, and I happily sat with this very view and wrote a letter to a dear friend.
And one glimpse from our ride homeward.
