Blueberries in Maine are very different from here, rather than growing on tall bushes, they grow in low clusters in fields. My brother-in-law's family had a friend with blueberries to pick so one day we drove up the road to a piece of land that was covered in blueberry bushes.

One of Anna and Maddie's favorite books these days is Blueberries for Sal which was given to our family by my brother-in-laws family whose house we were staying at in Maine. In the book, little Sal walks around eating as many blueberries as he puts in his pail. Here's Maddie doing her little Sal impression. From time to time she would even say "Kerplink, kerplank, kerplunk" just like little Sal, it was cute.
