STRAWBERRY PICKING!!!

Every year on the 'Ekka' public holiday we head up North to the Strawberry fields to fill our baskets (and tummys) with yummy, warm, fresh strawberrys. A tradition started by my sister-in-law Sue, we now enjoy going with a large group of Nicks family. This year sister-in-law Bernadette & Elliott joined the adventure!
The kids love picking their own container full - and although it costs more than in the shops - it is a once a year special event, so it is worth it!
