Happiness at the side of the road

Last night my husband, dog, and I drove to a hike a bike trail for a walk after dinner. I took along a small back pack with plastic bags in case we came across anything interesting to gather. We didn't. But on the way home I spotted a woman and her son gathering something at the side of the road.

My heart soared. Someone else out there was like me. I wanted to stop and talk, but evening was coming on and it looked like she and her son were feverishly trying to gather all that they could (blackberries, I think) in the remaining light and I didn't want to disturb their concentration.

And now I know where some more blackberries are : )

Off to gather what they missed...
