Currently in Long Beach WA (Low 51 Clouds and Sunshine High 67)

Yesterday was another cloudy day but we still did a few things. Jack's Country Store in nearby Ocean Park is known for having just about everything.

We can attest to the fact that there is a lot there from groceries to toys to hardware to clothes to camping to RV to ...., well you get the idea. Bought some groceries and cat food and there were places we couldn't go with the cart so we will have to go back. We then went to the Long Beach farmers market but it was a bust, not many vendors and nothing really appealed to us.

Since we weren't sure we would get any more clearing we decided to visit Oysterville which has a historic district with most buildings on the National Registry of Historic Places. Here is a picture from the web, our pictures of Oysterville did not turn out for some reason.

Oysterville sits on the Willapa Bay which produces the most oysters of any estuary in the United States and is in the top 5 in the world. We wanted to have some fresh oysters so went to the Oysterville Sea Farm.

We parked by the sign and this big pile of rocks only to find out it is a pile of oyster shells. 

Here is Bob by the pile showing how big it is.

Here is the building where we bought fresh oysters, smoked oysters, frozen crab cakes, etc. 

We took them home and had fresh oysters for supper, believe it or not these are categorized as extra-small.

We then drove some more around Oysterville and Nahcotta and saw piles of oyster shells even larger. It was a fun time and the oysters were great.

Till next time,

Bob and Jo


  1. Oh my! You just scoop them out and put them in your mouth?? I'd definitely have to be talked into doing that. :l

  2. We always enjoy Jack' to see items in corners with lots of dust...then wonder on their story..! Sounds like you did Oysterville proud!
