That's right. We found an old apple tree and have some questions for Gramps. The Annapolis Valley is famous the world over for its apples--and Gramps? Well, he knows all about apples.
We hike and hike and finally find that old apple tree.
Gramps lets Maggi have a guess first. Maggi thinks it tastes like a GREEN apple. But Maggi is wrong!
Gramps goes for more apples. He will go anywhere to pick any fruit. Careful Gramps!
Now I have a go at the apples. Crunch crunch smacksmack smack GULP. I say it is some kind of RED apple.
Gramps says that is cheating. He fills up his pack with MORE apples!
Now for the official word. Gramps has a smackeral. He says they are an ancient breed of Cortland apples and there was a farm here once. Gramps spits out his apple. He thinks it is too tart and we all laugh very hard.
The sun is going down. The days are short now. It is time to meander home.
We pass back over the fields, through the old farm land and back to the trail.
We were really happy to have our Gramps here with us on our walky.
Ever since my human was a little pup Gramps taught her about all the little wild flowers and the different types of trees and all the birds and animals.
It is important to have quality time you know.
