My day in pictures

The day started off with a 15 minute quad ride. This is the smooth part of the trail. It is full of rocks and washouts.
To our much loved blueberry patch
Then another15minute ride back to our cottage.
Can you tell I'm smiling here. We didn't think we would get any berries as we missed 2 weekends of picking.
Then to clean the berries of leaves and stems. We picked in the bush so no sand on them. Yeah. 
Lastly to dry and bag them. 
16 generous cups of sweet berries. 
For lunch we started a camp fire for cooking hot dogs, marshmallows and s'mores for lunch. 
Lastly finished the day off with a swim in the lake. Well except for Heather and I. Heather was determined to beat her video game and the cold water killed my knee. Ashley didnt come up this weekend as she is working on her house. Yes that is my finger at the top of the photo lol. 
Lastly I took my 3 mile walk this evening. Watched lightening from the deck and now off for a hot sauna.
I am posting from my phone and notice when I check my blog on my laptop the photos are so big half of it is missing unless I click on the photo. Not sure how to fix that. 

I hope you enjoyed my day in pictures. I hope you had a creative Saturday.



  1. I enjoyed your day in pictures it looked fabulous, especially all those yummy blueberries. We also like watching the lightening show on the lake when it happens, today it's just going to be a dull, drizzle day so it will be a crafty day for me.

  2. Fabulous fun days - looks great. Hope you have a great Sunday.

  3. such a beautiful, beautiful day!!! have a great labor day weekend, my friend!

  4. Looks like you enjoyed a fantastic day!

  5. Looks like a perfect weekend! And those blueberries look amazing.


  6. This looks like an absolutely fabulous day! Is the weather still warm up there? We had 90s this week, cooling down to 80s this week.

  7. We found some surprise blue berry bushes behind the neighbours! Jeff and the girls managed to pick enough for pie! (it was getting dark). What a lovely surprise!

  8. What a fun day! It looks like you had a great time. And now I'm inspired to go make some s'mores (yep, totally skipping the healthy blueberry-ness, and headed right for chocolate-marshmallow-graham cracker yummies!)

  9. lol at the finger. How is it we can still do that even with a preview?

    Look at the size of those berries, wow! Great pickings.


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
