The last stop of the salmon tour is to Willow View Farms for apple picking.
Unfortunately, we arrived at the farm at 5:30PM which is the closing time for the farm. The owner told us that we can look around and buy stuff from the store but no apple picking.
So, we just have a look around the store. There are a lot of pumpkins and squash.
The above is the biggest pumpkin in this farm.

We went for the Salmon Run at Weaver Creek. It was a cloudy day with light showers.
The view of farm land and mountains with fall colour was amazing.
The first stop was to Inch Creek Fish Hatchery to see the largest freshwater fish in the world. We saw two sturgeons in a shallow man made pond.
Then we proceeded to Weaver Creek. There were some nervous moments as our bus driver got lost on a mountain logging road. He got to turn around twice on a narrow logging road and the people who sat at the back of the bus were most scared when the bus backed up to the edge of the cliff. They kept telling the driver to stop reversing. Fortunately, we made our way down safely. Continue reading
Our flight home was at 9:15AM. We checked out early and took the 6:00AM Le Cars Air France from Montparnesse to CDG, terminal 1. The Luftansa staff were on strike during our flight. Fortunately, we had the early flight and we were able to clear immigration quite quickly despite the slow service.
I bought a croissant to munch while waiting for our flight. The first leg of our flight is from Paris to Frankfort which is just an hour flight.
We were served oatmeal and yogurt for breakfast on the short flight.
Our breakfast was served in a box. So, after eating, we can packed back the garbage into the box to be collected. Continue reading

On our walk back from Versailles to the train station, we came across a couple of wedding couples in front of a building (perhaps a registrar of some sort). It must be a good day for wedding.
The wedding groups were quite loud.
There were passers by like us that took photos of the wedding groups. Here are a few of the photos.

Before we start our exploration of the garden, we found a bench to sit down to enjoy our breakfast which we bought from the farm market.
We had baguette, cheese, ham and cherries tomatoes.
Here are some of the photos from the garden. It was a huge garden.
