FOOTBALL GAMES, HIKING TRIPS, AND WARM APPLE CIDER THE SIGHTS AND SOUNDS OF FALL
From the sights and sounds to the tastes and smells — the transition of seasons from summer to fall marks a change of pace for everyone even if that change varies from person to person. For some, it’s marked by children going back to school, and for others, fall is synonymous with football. Whatever the case, autumn provides ample opportunities to take a break from one of the busiest times of year for most people. So, whether you like breathing in the aroma of freshly pressed cider or joining the roaring crowds at a football game on the home field, with each experience comes the added enjoyment of rest from a hard day’s work. We’re all football fans at the Bohanon house. My two younger sons both "I’ve never been someone content to just watch others be active — not when the mountains are just an hour and a half west of Richmond, the ocean is just two hours east, and the cool temperatures are beckoning us outside.”
play football for the Glen Allen High Jaguars. My youngest is on the junior varsity team, my middle son is on varsity, and I played football when I was in high school as well. If you visit our house on a weekend, you will more than likely find a football game playing on TV. I’m a Virginia fan, but my father-in-law was a Virginia Tech alum, which means my wife is a Virginia Tech fan. But, despite that difference, on Thursday and Friday evenings, you can find us all outside sitting on metal bleachers and cheering on the boys at their games. But fall isn’t just a time for sitting and watching football. I’ve never been someone content to just watch others be active — not when the mountains are just an hour and a half west of Richmond, the ocean is just a couple hours east, and the cool temperatures are beckoning us outside. While it hasn’t been as regular a trip as it used to be, it’s a tradition in our family to get up to Carter Mountain to pick apples. Some of our other favorite destinations are Humpback Rock and Crabtree Falls in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The cool autumn air feels fantastic, and we get to return to our home, feeling invigorated, with a bounty of apples for cider.
While we can’t take the kids with us when we go, another adventure my wife and I like to have up in the mountains is to visit all the fantastic breweries, wineries, and cideries that Virginia has to offer. We often go with our friends who live up in the mountains, and, as an added bonus, we get to use their house as a sort of home base on our trips. We don’t really have a favorite destination or drink, but we’re always open to discovering new places and flavors. Every now and again, we’ll trade in the mountains for the ocean. Fall is striper-fishing season, and, amid the ocean breeze and the sound of waves rocking the boat, we try to reel in a big catch for the day. Whether it’s cheering for a touchdown on game day, feeling the breeze on the mountain trails, or finding a new favorite drink or brewery, we welcome any opportunity we can get to rest from a busy week. Happy autumn, everyone!
