Pumpkin Patches, Hayrides, Corn Mazes, Oh My!

October 9, 2007

I have to say I am loving my commute home, especially this time of year. I know it certainly does not feel like Fall out there – 80+ degree temps in October make for an extended Indian Summer! The drive along Route 34 from Belmar through Farmingdale and Colt’s Neck on north into Marlboro and Aberdeen is full of glorious Autumn sights to behold. Every mile or so there are farms and roadside stands decked out and advertising “Pick Your Own Pumpkin”, “100s of Halloween Costumes on Sale”, and “Corn Mazes”.  I want to go on a hayride dammit!

This certainly is my favorite time of the year. I just wish the leaves would start changing in earnest. Then it would truly feel like Fall and Halloween just around the corner.

According to the forecast, temps are going to drop into the 50s later in the week. I’m probably going to kick myself for saying this, but… “It’s about time!” :)

  1. While Matawan Day was no threat to mobility, this one is. No matter how lovely an idea it might seem, never travel this route on the weekend. It won’t be safe again until after Xmas tree season is dfinished.


  2. Yeah I can imagine all the families and people going to the farms for their pumpkins and all the activities on the weekends! The ride home in the early evening is fine, I usually miss “rush-hour” traffic because I stay at work late so my commute home isn’t so bad. Not to mention, I love dusk – the colors in the sky are nice. ;p
