Every Wednesday, the good folks at Old Mission Peninsula United Methodist Church (my home church) take the “Cool Bus” over to Buchan’s Blueberry Hill for some yummy ice cream.
I finally had a chance to participate in this fun activity, and not only were the church folks there, but the iconic ice cream/farm stand was packed with people! In addition to home-made ice cream, they also offer fruit in season, including blueberries, apples and peaches, as well as jams, jellies and other farm goods.
