Spring Fever Strawberries

OK. We’ve got it.

So the temperature hasn’t touched 60 degrees yet. But we’re getting close. Today we’re at 55. And it feels like heaven. Springtime in heaven.

Whit and I wiped the dust off our bikes this morning and headed up the street to do some shopping, spring-fever strolling through the markets, and some basking in the sun.

Each season in Korea brings a new fruit, which comes much cheaper and in much more bulk than any other fruit. In other words, it’s the fruit you eat all season. All winter, we have been eating Korean oranges. The little mandarins were delicious. Even Mom and Dad bit their teeth into a hundred or so during their week in Korea. But I’m getting tired of oranges. So what would be next, I wondered.

And I’m happy to report it’s strawberries. Big, plump, red, sugary strawberries, grown right here in the Land of the Morning Calm.

Check out our photos from our morning adventure, including my return to the trampoline!

    So we’ll have your counterpart blog later this afternoon – check it out. And I love the Pine Marr trampoline action. Now the real question: Did you nail the landings on those flips? You were probably a little rusty (sort of like the springs on that trampoline).

    I am so impressed. Did you have a little “My Girl” tunage in the background. I think I would bust up some stitches if I tried to do that.I am jealous of the weather and the fresh strawberries. It is cold today and the only fruit in my kitchen is oranges.


  4. Jessica, you’ll be happy to know that I almost made both landings. The first one I overshot a bit, taking two steps forward after the landing. The second one I landed just right, but my socks slipped and I took one step forward. Rusty. But not bad.
