Blackberry Adventure 2013

Story Behind Foto: Earlier this summer my boyfriend, Ryan, and I went on a little blackberry pickin’ adventure. I call it adventure because it involved nature, a creek, flowing water, bugs, and getting wet. See, to me, this is an adventure, to him it was something to do. As I mentioned before he has an interesting job, I think it is interesting.

Moving on, he decided we should go blackberry pickin’ in a “secret” spot off some bike trail in the Sacramento area. I agreed to this adventure and so off we went to find blackberries. He made us DIY buckets (an empty gallon of water with a handle) and a berry pickin’ stick with a hook at the end of it this way we could reach out further and get the better larger berries. We trekked down a shallow creek pickin’ berries and ended with a few pounds of the fruit. We had anticipated making some great dessert or smoothie with the fruit of our labor, but in the meantime, they’re waiting in the freezer.

Overall, we had a lot fun doing something out of the ordinary and I was able to take a few cool foto’s. Here’s one of my favorite.

Happy Friday,

CAT
