Life has been busy lately - a little too busy for my liking.
There's not enough time to stop and breathe, or spend time together.
So this weekend we grabbed a lovely friend, piled in the car and headed to the hills.
|Yes they do taste as amazing as they look!|
We planned at first to pick berries but as Saturday had been a beautiful day the berry farms had been picked-out and hence are closed for a few days.
So cherries it was.
|Having a Dad who is 195cm (6ft 5 inches) has its advantages!|
There was plenty of this...
|You are allowed to eat as much as you like...|
|Yes, that second front tooth is hanging by a thread!|
|The bemused looks on the girls faces sums it up for me!|
|Butter wouldn't melt would it... hmmm|
And it was important to wear your cat tail on adventure such as this!
Fruit picking is a lovely family outing.
Apart from wandering in the fresh air together and engaging in the teamwork of picking, there are lessons of nature to be learned along the way.
After we browsed through the shops in Olinda and had some lovely wood-fired pizza.
A very pleasant, relaxing, reviving day.
Goodbye cherries - we'll see you again next year.
PS - sorry for my recent absence - I had a major Picasa problem - it seems a few bloggers have had this lately...
After all, a blog post without pics is just, well, kind of dull!
