28 Mile Long Garage Sale
A 28 mile-long garage sale is the Memorial Day Weekend activity on the Longbeach Peninsula every year. Riff and I decided to join the crowds and poke and prod around in other people's discardables this year. Shilo and Dustin were both at work, poor things, with very long and busy days for both of them. The garage sale signs began about Chinook, Washington so we slowly crept our way up to the Peninsula, stopping in Ilwaco for a peek at the pirate ships that were docked there.
HOLY BUCKETS! Which way do we go? I said right, Riff turned left, and darned if we shouldn't have gone straight! There were SO many that we barely hit the fringe of all of these sales. I'm sure that we missed out on some perfectly good deals. There came a time when my belly was telling my head that we were done until some food was had. Fish 'n chips were the order of the day and we found the perfect plate full at The Dunes in Ocean City. MMM....and the coleslaw! Stop sometime if you're ever passing through. You won't be disappointed.
I'm always "house dreaming" and this is my pick this weekend.
And - WA-LAA!- My stash of little goodies that I managed to come home with. We didn't come away with anything grand and spectacular this time, just a bunch of little stuff, but what fun!
May you all be blessed with a day of backroad exploring, (oh, and fish 'n chips, of course!)
