Giant Blueberry

Who doesn't love giant food? The blueberry is one of my favourites. He looks like he's one of the Mr. or Miss characters from the children's book series (remember: Miss Naughty, Mr. Tickle, Mr. Shy, etc.).

The Blueberry lives at the Oxford Irving in NS. I often stop there to collect gas or coffee before embarking on the Cobequid Pass. Apart from being a good stopping place, Oxford is also known as the blueberry capital. So it's appropriate th Giant Blueberry lives here. But he used to live in front of a hotel in Sussex. When we were kids, we could see him as we drove by on the highway, and he was always one of the highlights. It was a great disappointment when he moved away.

I'm pleased to see he finally has a new coat of paint!! Poor fellow looked quite shabby for the longest time...
