Strawberries U-Pick

We picked Swanton Berry Farm as our U-pick destination, a morning getaway. I want my organic strawberries. I want it NOW! I want it CHEAP! And I want it SWEET! Swanton Berry Farm has it all. You just have to turn laborious , do some legwork and you can have it NOW, CHEAP, and SWEET. Organic too! Nothing is free in this world, right? If you want it, work for it!

Currently, the strawberry field is opened for U-pick and strawberries are at $2/lb. Are you ready to join the fun ? Find a nearby U-pick location near you. Just make sure to call any location you have chosen to make sure the fields are ready for U-pick.

Alcatraz Island by the cruise

If you come to San Francisco and wish to take a history lesson, take a cruise to Alcatraz Island .

See that seagull ? The worst time to visit is early summer (late June-ish) when nesting seagulls create a stink! Spring and fall will be nice.

Coming Fall 2008, Alcatraz Cruises will feature an air, wind diesel-powered ferry for visitors visiting the island. This 600-passenger trimaran will emit about half of the pollutants of similarly sized conventional boats.
