Just home from a wonderful day on the water.

Durl and Linda took us cranberry picking but we first needed to travel upriver to the bog.

Rubber boots are essential as you are walking on a mat of roots and bushes with the water inches below the surface. 

Mary happy to be out picking berries, unfortunately there were no berries to be found. We all searched different areas and the results were the same; no berries. This is the first time in 20 years that Durl and Linda have not found berries. We think the late frost in the spring may have killed off the buds.

Back at the boat we decided that a river cruise might be a good way to enjoy this perfect day so off we went to explore the river and enjoy the scenery.

Of course there was lots of chatter and jokes made about the lack of fruit to pick.

My job was to stay in the bow to balance the boat and watch for logs just below the water surface. 

It was another perfect fall day here in North Hastings. This is the best time of year to be here and we had a great day with Durl and Linda. No berries but lots of laughs.

Safe travels everyone and thanks for stopping by.
