My personal favorite comes from my first trip to Maine back in the summer of 2001. I went up to Maine for a weekend in August with my roommate, who had family up there, and her friend. They were retired and live somewhere in a hilly area within walking distance of a lake. They had hoped to run a bed and breakfast during their retirement but found it to be too much work (i.e., constantly working). While we were there, I learned that blueberries grew in these beautiful patches in a field nearby:
