Yesterday, robot_grrl, Derrick and I headed up to Julian. We've been wanting to head up there for a visit for a year or so, and Friday Tara suggested that we go.

She'd done some advanced research, and determined that we'd missed the apple festival -- probably a good thing since it wouldn't be quite as crowded. But, with it still being a fall weekend, and a nice one at that, there was still quite a crowd in town.

After finding parking, we headed to a barbecue place we'd heard about about. Alas, it turned out to be a bit overpriced, and not all that good. We then wandered around town for a while. While wandering the only thing we actually bought was some cherry-apple cider, and that was just a glass a piece.

We had thought about getting a slice of pie in town (or a couple to compare). But there were lines outside of all of them. We did try some apple fritters at another place that didn't have a line, but they too were overpriced.

So after deciding we'd seen what we wanted for the day, we headed back down and stopped at the Mom's Pies about half way down the hill and brought home two whole pies for less than the three fritters.

Despite that, I'd like to head back again. Maybe not on a day that is quite so busy and we'll be more careful with where we get our food.

Today was a bit more normal. This morning was church. As is now usual (unless I'm out of town) I'm running tech for the 9:30 kids program. Then we all did the service and went to lunch. After lunch, we picked up some groceries and headed home.
