Weekend bonus shot, 04.25.10


Le Dejeuner sur l’Herbe, only with way more dirt than herbe, Berkeley, CA.

After a harrowing tour through a poison oak hedge — okay, maybe I’m exaggerating, but only a little, and no, nobody got any, thanks to Baba’s code red terror alert vigilance (“Don’t even LOOK at the verdant splendor at the side of the trail, children!  Hands where I can see them! And no zig-zagging!”) — we spread out the picnic blanket in the middle of the first, wide fire trail we saw.  From this spot we were ideally positioned to greet the mountain biking, hiking, and horse-riding passers-by. (“Greetings! No poison oak here, no siree! Have a nice day!”)

  1. Haha! I love that Baba comes with built-in code red!
    To this day, with grown children, I think everything with 2,3,4 and 5 leaves is suspicious. I’m just cautious like that.

  2. Must be something cosmic going on; I too went on a picnic this weekend! Probably not quite as nice as yours, it was half way through a 20 mile bike ride so I was too sticky and sun burnt to enjoy it. No poison oak in England either, just stinging nettles, and the first thing I learnt as a kid was which weed soothes nettle bumps (I am a little depressed to learn that “Doc Leaves” are actually “Dock Leaves…)
