Wild Hot Young Tender Cherries
Oh my... I've just noticed that some of you *perverts* may have misconstrued the title of this post. Well, sorry... Time to get your mind out of the gutter *and back in the sewer where it belongs*
Now, there's a really nice, new trail out at Belair National Park. It makes an easy way to get to a memorial which used to be a real pain to get to. But if you go past the memorial and through a meadow between a bunch of redwoods, you'll come to a border of the park. Directly on the other side of the border is someones old cherry plantation.
As in cherry trees.
We didn't hop the fence (barbed wire, ya know), but there are 3 or 4 cherry trees on the park side that self-seeded themselves a few years ago.
Those trees produce cherries.
Really, really good cherries.
See, look for yourselves:
The trick is to get there just before they've fully ripened so the birds haven't eaten them all. And now that there's the new trail I guess next season we'll be battling hikers for them too, sigh...
On our way back we spied this bloke doing the standard Aussie thing in the middle of the afternoon:
I do have a picture that may amuse the *perverts* who swung by here because of my misleading blog post title. Hmmmmm, the picture may also just amuse me mates back in Alaska since there's some kind of cold snap going on...
