With both of our children in Denmark for the holidays we thought that this might be an opportunity to visit the Oregon coast. We love walking on the beach and there is always the chance of seeing whales and so we packed up the car and headed to Gold Beach… but not before baking a Three Berry Pie. I did not have a recipient in mind but knew that we would find someone along the way. And we did!
As we approached the agriculture inspection station at the border between Oregon and California I knew I wanted to gift my pie to the agent working there. It was after 6PM on Christmas Eve and he was on duty checking cars for fruit that should not cross state line. Who better to surprise with a pie?
And after the agent asked if we had any fruit I told him about my pie project and asked him if he would share a pie with his coworkers. He said he would and so I gave agent Greg a pie tonight and wished him a Merry Christmas. And I send you all my warmest wishes for a Merry Christmas as well.
