Who Knew? Today is National Blueberry Pie Day (2 photos) / by Dave Hileman

I didn’t not even know there was a National Blueberry Pie Day. I almost missed it and that would be so sad. You will notice that I had no difficulty finding a photo (actually several) of real Maine Wild Blueberry Pie. (Anyone else think this person has a bit too many photos of pie when we have only seen two of his grandkids?) Anyway, the two shots are of different pies. The slice is from West Street Cafe in Bar Harbor and was the choice in the category “Best Pie to Order with Dinner.” The whole pie is from Morning Glory Bakery about a block away. It won “Best Wild Blueberry Pie on the Island,” a most prestigious award selected by an expert panel of Picky Pie People who tried more than anyone should to determine the overall winner. Their’s was an heroic effort with total disregard for calories and vast quantities of caffeine.


“And people should eat and drink and enjoy the fruits of their labor, for these are gifts from God.”
