The Berry That's Blue.
I was out on one of Lake Vermilion's 365 islands the other day. As I walked across the typical Vermilion rock outcroppings it was tough not to step on the blueberries. It looks like a darn good crop this year.
In our area of the world the blueberry needs no introduction. But this fruit's attributes are not widely known. The Wild Blueberry Association of North America (WBANA) is trying to change that.
They have a website called the "Power of Blue". They note several interesting facts about this berry.
Did you know the blueberry is the number one antioxidant when compared to other commercially available fruits and vegetables? It beats out broccoli, spinach, garlic, kale, strawberries, and the ever popular brussell sprout. The site also claims the blueberry may 1) be anti-aging, 2) assist cancer prevention, 3) control urinary tract infections, 4) promote vision health, and 5) possibly reduce age-related brain damage, i.e. Alzheimers and other dementia-type diseases.
Not a bad resume for our little wild berry.
So next time you're out in the Lake Vermilion woods and you see a clump of blue down at your feet, take a minute to enjoy a few.
And feel the power of blue.

I've got some photos piling up that will make good Lake Vermilion related posts. This time of year the days do not contain enough hours... so I haven't had the chance to put them on the web page. But that's a good thing. July is a good month for the real estate business. But I'm going to take a little breather real soon. A breather on the lake.
See you there.
P.S. Send me a photo of your time at the lake.

We had a good ol' fashioned gully washer roll over the lake this evening. There was a great combination of clouds, sun, and rain that produced one of those "look up and take notice" type of skies.
If all else fails you can always rely on the weather for web page filling subject matter.
Real estate activity is still very strong. I should have a number of eye-catching properties to post here within the next several days.
Please check back. In the meantime... send me a note.
