A gorgeous day greeted us as we headed out on our “Foraging for Adventure” workshop at the Unscripted Twillingate Digital Media Arts Festival. Starting with Newfoundland’s iconic berry, we began our day looking at blueberries in lots of new ways…the morning dew clung to the berries and inspired our photography as we wandered off with our cameras…errrr “capture devices”. We had iPhones, iPads, Go-Pros, an Autographer, digital SLR’s, and even a partridge near a fir tree.
New discoveries were found by looking at the bog from all levels: low, high, up, down, all-around. The cousins were enthralled to learn that bog iron is a natural phenomenon.
Smart phones made it easy to capture the beauty of a rose hip in a hip way. Rose hips can be steeped into tea or made into jelly. Rose hips are a source of Vitamin C.
The beauty of this picture is the contrasting colours and the unscripted inscription of tea from tea leaves. They say Newfoundland’s favourite tea is Tetley however Twillingate grows its own flavour of tea, Labrador Tea. Collect its leaves, save ‘em for later, drop them in boiled water and let them steep…and enjoy!
We flew Tibetan prayer flags over Lookout #4. The wind lifted the colourful flags and carried off their wonderful intentions for a better world.
Celebrating our great day together foraging for wild edibles, adventures, and friendships.
