Last weekend when I was at Lierfoss, I went to the forrest to pick berries with my parents. We try to do that every year. Normally we walk through the forrest close to our home. It starts only a few hundred meters from the house. This year we wanted to try some place else. We decided to try my uncles forrest, which is located a 5 minute drive away from us.
This year we wanted to pick blueberries. When we had parked the car and started walking we saw some bushes with wild raspberries. We also spotted some on our way into the forrest. So we decided to pick some raspberries on our way back.
Little did we know that we would find cloudberries in that forrest as well. That made us all happy, esp. dad. He loves cloudberries.
I had to bring my camera on this forrest trip. I love being in the forrest and photographing it. What I didn’t like was all the bites I got from ants and mosqitos. An ant bit me in my foot and it hurt so, so bad. I don’t think I’ve been bitten by an ant where it has hurt as bad as that did. Yesterday morning I counted all my bites and I found 12! They itch, some more than others. I have three on my right hand that is very annoying.
Oh well, enough about the bites and back to the photos. Here they are:
We didn’t bring enough boxes for our berries, so we had to use what we got. The raspberries were put in an empty cookie-box. We decided that we needed to go back the next day to find more berries. We wanted to bring home every cloudberry we could find. When we got home we had to through all the berries, put them in boxes, lable them with what kind of berry/date and put them in the freezer.
I have more photos from my second day out in the forrest, but I haven’t even looked at them yet. They will come later, hopefully. Stay tuned.
