A Day in the Valley

Getting close to Hale Farm
Tami and I drove over to Peninsula to check out Szalay's Farm Market. This was our first visit here and it was neat to see all the unique food/fruit items they had for sale. There were a ton of people here today since it's getting closer to Halloween. Plus it was sunny and 80 degrees. Very rare for this time of year. We bought a few pumpkins, gords, and some apple cider before leaving. Then we went over and walked on the Towpath, which is located right behind the farm market. We headed south to Indigo Lake and Hale Farm before turning around. The leaves on the trees were really nice today with the sun shining on them. I also enjoyed seeing the area around Hale Farm, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. Everything was built back in the 1800's and it really makes you feel like you've stepped back in time. Sometime I'll have to purchase admission to see everything on their grounds. Here are a few more pictures I took next to Indigo Lake and Hale Farm.

This sign reads "Jonathan Hale Homestead: Land purchased in 1810. Present house built about 1825 and maintained by the Western Reserve Historical Society as a museum in memory of the Western Reserve pioneers."
