My friend and I were walking down by beach the other day and came across a ton of blackberry bushes. Of course, we began eating as many as we could get our hands on – which is quite hard considering all the sharp barbs! He said we should have gone home to get a bucket to collect them in, so I could bake something with them – of course. We didn’t, but I had gotten the idea that I wanted to go back down, with a bucket this time, to pick some and bake with them. Needless to say someone was happy with the idea of me picking blackberries and baking with them. So a few days later I decided to go down, with Lainey, and pick a whole bunch. Usually you see people with old ice cream buckets collecting them, which is a good idea, except we don’t eat buckets of ice cream and don’t have any around. So, a big Tupperware had to do.
Lainey and I set out early in the morning down to the dyke on the beach to pick some blackberries.
It was nice and sunny – at 8 am. And the berries are just waiting to get picked!
I think Lainey was more excited for her walk along the dyke than the berries.

All the juicy berries are in the back – out of reach!
But I managed to get my hands on some!
Lainey investigates the berries. Yup, their good.
Stay tuned for what these delicious berries get baked into!
