And now, we suggest to you yet another day trip. But can you blame us? The dog days of summer can take a toll on both body (dehydration, heat rash, that weird feeling of being coated in a strange filmy layer by the end of the day) and spirit (sure, a few months ago we couldn’t wait for summer, but now we start wondering if it will ever end). Our best bet to beat the heat? Get out of the city, and surround yourself with either water or trees or both. Our favorite kind of trees? The ones that bear delicious fruit. And what kind of fruit? Um, the kind you can make pies and jams out of. And all the better if you get to spend the day picking them yourself, of course.
