Blueberries !

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.
