Happy Birthday J.

July 25th, 2007. Categories / Portland

Yesterday, J. and I celebrated her birthday by going berry picking at Sauvie Island.
J. rented a Mini through Flexcar earlier in the afternoon, so we had a vehicle. The raspberries and blackberries weren’t looking so hot, but the blueberries were out in full force. We picked a few pints and bought some other discount produce before driving around the island before coming home. It’s never a bad evening if it’s spent on a farm. And I was in a glum mood too.

Some photos:

The main eyesore of the new Mini’s already annoying interior styling.
