Did you notice? Gas prices are way down and temperatures are way up. So, do the obvious — go to the coast.
This Thursday is the Ilwaco City Wide Art Walk from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Art exhibits, demos, snacks, music are on the menu from places like The Antique Gallery, Shoalwater Cove Gallery, Peninsula Wine Merchants, Just Treasures Antiques, Baker Bay Gallery, Wade Gallery, The Inn at Harbour Village and the various fine dining restaurants at the Port. I’ve eaten at a couple of them — they are worth the drive alone.
The photo above is by one Mr. Bruce Peterson, talented photographer, East Coast ex-pat, and top Ilwaco champion. He and his wife own the lovely Wade Gallery.
And if a buzz out to Ilwaco is too much on a school night, this weekend is a Weekend of Music at the Port and on the peninsula with Blues and Seafood, including the Bite of Ilwaco on Saturday, and, on Sunday, the festivities continue with Jazz and Oysters in historic Oysterville. And if you don’t like oysters (gasp, I know), pick up some cranberries at Oysterville Sea Farms — they are delicious.
