Apple Crisp and Portsmouth Road Trip

Bill and I went to see Cally today in Portsmouth.  We had a great day!  We arrived in Portsmouth just before noon and picked Cally up and went for a ride.  We traveled on the Ohio Byway.  It was called the Scenic Scioto Heritage Trail.  On this byway we went to see Ohio's Biggest yellow Buckeye Tree.  We had to hunt but we did find a few buckeyes.  This tree was huge!

We also went to the Shawnee State Park.  The lodge was beautiful!  The below picture  is the scene off the back of the lodge porch.

Even though we have seen the murals on the flood wall we went again to take a look.  These paintings on the flood wall are the most beautiful paintings I have ever seen painted on an outside wall or building.

I love this picture of the cat.  This is the flood gate building and on the building it has bricks painted and this cat is painted at the edge of the door on the side of the step with it's food bowl being painted on the door.

Well now to the Apple Crisp.  I love this time of year ..... Autumn is my favorite season.  Apples and pumpkin are my favorite autumn flavors.
