The long drive was my favorite part. We took a plastic bowl a piece and both looked carefully out the window for blackberries. We have not had rain here in a couple weeks, and it has been very hot, so the blackberries are kind've small and hard to find this year. I have hope that this week will be better, because just last night we had a good soaking rain.
These roads were not new to us. Our first little house was on this road. At one point we had a 4 wheeler and we spent many fun hours exploring all of the dirt roads surrounding ours. We had 2 places with swimming holes and fun memories. We drove by the spot of J's dirt bike accident. When I was pregnant with our daughter we would walk each evening down this dirt road. The blackberries were plentiful that year. We always had a sack with us and came home with it brimming with juicy, ripe berries. Such sweet memories!
We came across this herd of cows and I thought the little white calf was so cute, I couldn't resist getting a picture. J took it with his iPhone. If you click on the picture it will enlarge so you can see the calf better, it's over on the right.
I am still learning how to put the pictures up and put script around them where I want, and I can not figure out how to end this post under the picture of the cows. So, I will end it here. UGH!
Have a happy, safe 4th!
