‘Tis the Season

. . . for strawberries.  And so we set off to our first ever strawberry festival, because, well, why not?  It provided as good an excuse as any to get outside on a near-perfect summer day.  To be sure, the festival was missing some things.  I don’t recall, for example, seeing a strawberry daiquiri stand or girls with trays of strawberry Jello shots.  They had some ponies.  But I don’t think they were strawberry flavored, so I’m not sure exactly how they fit in.  What they did have, though, were the essentials you’d expect from any strawberry festival: berry picking and strawberry shortcake.  Throw in some blue-grass music under crystal clear skies and you have the makings of an afternoon well-spent.
