Right down the road from the beach is a place called Russel Orchard. You can go there to pick apples and buy fresh apple cider and everyone's fave- cider donuts. The store is a big old wooden barn. It's a tradition to stop for donuts on the way home from the clambake. It's usually about closing time and there is a huge line of people waiting for their donuts. While you're in line, it's fun to watch them drop the circle of dough into the hot grease, let it fry for a couple of minutes and then come down the conveyor belt right into your bag. They're so hot you have to leave the bag open or it would melt right through. You can't get any fresher than that. YUM! We bought donuts, cider and apples to fortify us for the ride home. It was the perfect New England fall day!
