Let The Games Begin
The blackberries in Sandpiper are ripening as I type and I am all set to stretch and reach and twist and bend my body into a contortionist's dream to win as many of these delicious treasures as possible.  All over the island you see faithful and brave pickers sweating in the summer heat wearing long sleeves and pants to give them as much thorny protection as possible.  Last fall and winter our guests and friends enjoyed our homemade blackberry jam (as did we).  This year I am roping Michael into picking service and together I know we will gather more than ever.  I bet the number of friends grow in accordance with the amount of berries we pick.
