I snapped this weeks photo on my way back from Grant Narrows. The flood of bright red cranberries right out of an Ocean Spray commercial caused a mini-traffic jam of amateur photographers like myself. Those unfamiliar with cranberries might be wondering what’s going on here. Cranberries contain four air pockets within the fruit making them float in water. Farmers make use of this fact during harvesting by flooding the fields, corralling the berries to one corner, and pumping them out with the water.
