Blackberries by the Bay

A neighbor told me about a secret spot by the bay where blackberries are plentiful. She had just picked 5 lbs! I went yesterday, and although my bounty was not as plentiful, it was a beautiful day and very serene...until an 80 year old bald man nearly ran me over. He was on a big kind of skateboard/surfboard with a paddle that he used to push himself along MY peaceful walkway. After nearly squashing me (and my berries) he yelled at me and said if I got in his way again, he'd run right into me! He was so ridiculous, that I just laughed and yelled "thank you for your consideration."
