Picking Blueberries at Conners Nubble–Saturday–July 20,2013

Early this morning, Dan, Tricia, Syl, Bill and I decided to go Blueberry Picking!! We invited Sherry and David, but they had previous plans.  However, David promised to make us a Blueberry Pie if we picked him 6 cups.  Well…that’s a great deal!!!


We decided to head back to Conner’s Nubble.  We have been here several times during our Carriage Road bike rides.  Today, we decided to hike from the Eagle Lake parking area along the carriage roads to South Shore Trail.  There we would connect with the lakeside hiking trail to Conner’s Nubble Summit.  Our total round trip today would be about 4 miles.

It was a spectacular morning and the views from the summit were wonderful.  Picking wild blueberries takes some time.  They are very small and it takes a lot of picking to fill those plastic bags.  But the five of us moved to different areas and got the job done. 
 
We picked enough for David to make a blueberry pie and then some.  Each of us had enough to put some in our freezers as well!!  David’s pie was absolutely amazing… definitely a plate licking good pie;o)) 
 
I think picking blueberries in Acadia was one of my favorite activities while we were here!!!
