Three things to do this weekend

All weekend: Ripe blackberries dangle from thorn-studded vines all over western Washington, waiting to be picked. Himalayan blackberries are a non-native, troublesome plant, but each sweet berry that goes into your mouth has no chance to become a new vine.

All weekend: Salmon fishing is in high gear in Puget Sound north of Tacoma. Boaters have lots of room to find schools of salmon, but shore anglers – such as the masses found at Dash Point – are also hooking fish.

All weekend: Summer won’t be here forever, and this weekend looks like a good one to put a kayak into Puget Sound and paddle around. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies and highs in the low 70s. Be sure to wear a life vest, and don’t launch if the water is rough.
