"I can't believe that I've lived in Folsom all of my life and never knew about this place."

It's funny what you hear while you are enjoying a relaxing activity and people are passing by.  Yesterday, some family members and I went out for our annual blackberry picking day on Lake Natomas.  It's one of those days that I look forward to every year.  Not only because it's wrapped up with some delicious treats at the end of the day, but also because it's about getting outside with friends and family, getting some exercise and breaking bread together at the end of the day.

As you know, I'm an avid cyclist and back in 1992 I started noticing the wild blackberry bushes along the bike trail in Gold River and Folsom.  I'd take the kids out on their bikes and we'd pick for an hour and come home to make jams and pies.  It was always a challenge getting our tupperware containers home on bikes, but it was always worth the effort. 

Then one year while out kayaking on Lake Natomas, I realized that we could access all of the blackberry bushes along the lake that cyclists, walkers and runners couldn't.  The bootie was amazing.  Not only were the berries plumper and juicier because they were closer to the water source, but it was half the work harvesting them because there are so many!

Now our mojo is to launch kayaks from either Negro Bar or Willow Creek with our empty containers and paddle to the the bushes along the shore.  It's easy to get out and pick for as long as you want, (water shoes help).  Yesterday I filled two containers, (about 12 cups of berries) in about an hour while the rest of my family paddled around.  We all came home to a BBQ and made 2 pies for dessert.  Today I'm thinking jam!
