Finally some strawberries

I was beginning to think that our local strawberries were not going to show up this year.  Last week we drove by some fields and could just see a few ripe ones.

Then over the weekend we noticed some "Open" signs, but it was too late in the day to take advantage of the U-picks.

Yesterday we went to Beaufort to show some visiting friends the waterfront and the Maritime Museum.  We drove back through Morehead City and down the beach.

When we came across the bridge at Emerald Isle, we hooked a left at the intersection of Highway 70 and Highway 24 and headed to Winberry's in Cedar Point.  We arrived just as they were closing and got an over-sized box of ripe local strawberries.

We managed to wait until we got home before sampling the berries. They were delicious.  It was hard to stop eating them.

I am looking forward to having more berries this morning for breakfast.
