Blueberry Picking

Some facts about blueberries

- Ranked #1 in antioxidant activity when compared to other fresh berries and fruits/vegetables {ref}
- 'Anti-Aging' properties (ref)
- Reduces cholesterol {ref}
- Lots of fiber
- Improve blood circulation
- No if not minimal adverse effects of use of extracts
- Can treat coughs, diarrhoea, gout, rheumatism, typhoid fever, mouth ulcers

Was it due to the reasons above? Not really. U-Pick blueberries is simply good clean fun and cheap too! So on Sunday after church, we headed to Richmond along Blundell Road to pick blue-berries.

Clarissa's collection after 20mins (with dad's help)

Aaron found a bird's nest too!

We picked 6Ibs of blueberries in 80 minutes. After all the activity under the hot sun, we thought we give ourselves a little treat. Where else but McDonald's.
