treasures...and oysters

It's been a good summer for treasure hunting...this last weekend in Astoria, Oregon and on the Long Beach Peninsula in Washington was some of the best. Art buddies Paula and Jan joined me this time for a little relaxation and fun at the coast. Our first stop was in Astoria where we visited several shops and galleries. And there were cupcakes, oh yes! But I think our favorite place in town was Dots 'N Doodles art supply store; amazing goods and the shop owners are beyond great!
There were several spots out on Long Beach Peninsula to find vintage goodies, including Raven's Haven and Nahcotta Antiques and Collectibles.

The weather was brilliant...these gulls were catching a few rays on Willapa Bay near Oysterville.

We looked on as bags of newly harvested oysters were unloaded at the dock.

We all agreed that this trip was a perfect way to spend one of our last summer weekends.

Looks like a great weekend getaway. I love Astoria and Dots and Doodles is an amazing art store (although I haven't been down to visit the store in their new location). Beatuiful weather, too.

Thanks, Suzanne, for a fun weekend. You may have got me into antiquing. Discovering a few treasures kept me going.
