If you read last Thursday’s Triplicate you probably saw the front-page story about the third- and fourth-graders from Foursquare Christian School’s field trip to the cranberry bogs in Bandon. Rick and I were there to cover it, then suddenly I was thigh-high in a bog.

Two years ago I drove through Bandon on my way up to Salem, Ore., for the birth of my granddaughter and happened on a cranberry harvest. I stopped to watch how the cranberries floated to the top when the bog was flooded and found the whole process amazing. I wrote a column about the experience and that’s how I became acquainted with Chelle Webb.

Chelle read my column and sent me an e-mail explaining the history of the bog I had written about. She was very familiar with it because she used to work there. Now, she said, she had her own bogs and invited me to come out for the next harvest.
