On Fox Island (West side), there are many blueberry bushes. They might also be all over the island but we haven't confirmed it as yet. At this time, we can find a few ripe berries but mostly they are still white and some green. Most are sheltered among the big rocks
so they get a lot of sun and just a little wind. I love it here! We've been here for 5 days; and I could still stay for another 10. The surrounding has so much to offer, I don't get bored. So, blueberries, hopefully I can pick enough to make muffins before we leave on Sunday morning - we'll need to pump out and reprovision by that time.
I remember last year a sailor friend who has a cottage in Killarney Bay gave us a quart of local blueberries when we had him over for dinner as we had anchored near his cottage. I was thankful of such generosity: have you picked up blueberries before? It takes a lot of time and patience. Often, the local blueberries are smaller (yet tastier) than those from California that are as big as grapes.
Anyway, I digress.
A few days after this dinner, anchored at Heywood Island with other sailor friends, I was mentioning my blueberries when my Kathy mentioned that her husband and she love blueberry muffins. I didn't have any eggs left but she did. So I made a deal with her: 2 eggs for 4 muffins. That was pretty cool.
