Do you know I never had tasted blueberries before I moved to Norway? In fact, I can't even recall seeing them in the supermarket back in the Netherlands. But, once I moved here, I have eaten lots of them. Mostly foreign (from Poland and such), but on the weekend I had Norwegian ones. Picked by yours truly on my way to that mountain top. 

And then today I went blueberry picking. Together with a new hiking partner, who almost flew up the mountain. I was quite jealous, but then again, she had four legs and I only have two. Lotta (as this little dog was called) took her owner along and the three of us made our way up the highest mountain in Haugesund, a staggering 246 meters above sea level (Valhest was 313). 

That's Valhest in the distance
Along the way there was mud, more mud and even more mud. And blueberries. So many blueberries. Fortunately I didn't have to handpick them, my friend had a gizmo for that. I managed to get to the top with my blueberries and I managed to hold on to them on the way down as well. 

Mmmm, blueberries with vanilla sauce for dinne dessert tonight.

    My word, I'sa loving the blueberry gizmo!!! and YUMMMOOOO... Walking with such rewards to earn makes things very interesting - as does doggy company! YAM xx

    1. It was so easy! And no blue/red fingers from the blueberry juice either. Besides that, we were picking while going up, so I hardly noticed the incline.

  4. They are so good for you, and they're great in pies. Yum.

    Apparently, they grow higher on bushes down south, but ours are like yours -- low down.

    There are lots of stands on the rural highway to the west of us. It's poor farmland, but it's fine for the berries.

  5. I find that so hard to believe about blueberries!! They are so yummy and so good for you.
