Cranberry harvest

The view: fall cranberry harvest over southeastern Massachusetts

The airplane: Cirrus SR20

The pilot: Frank Facchetti

The mission: Completed an Angel Flight mission at Martha’s Vineyard (MVY) and was headed to Plymouth, MA (PYM), to see my A&P when I was rewarded with this sight of the annual cranberry harvest.

The memory: Cranberries are knocked off their bushes while the bogs are flooded, allowing them to be corralled for harvest. We may be flatlanders here in this part of our state but the water views (both coastal and lakes) make it beautiful flying country. This annual sight is always one of my favorite iconic views of the Cape Cod area.
