Port Costa Town-Wide Yard Sale

Town wide? Well, it only takes about 10 minutes to walk the entire span of the town, from stem to stern and another ten from port to starboard. That is, unless you are stopping to take photos of the the many reasons it is a town near and dear to my heart--the beauty:

The beast:

The buildings:

(oldest house in Port Costa)

The things that made it unique:

The family:

We were walking/running all over town to get from one sale to another. The oddest thing I saw for sale? A metal casket (it was rusty inside). The most wonderful thing I saw? An old yellow velvet, upholstered chair (bought it!). Want to see it? If I can bare to part with it, it will be HERE next month!

Either which way, it was a great day for a walk, right Dad?

  1. JAN! You need to be living in this little town. This place is calling your name. Sell that house your living in and go rent one in Port Costa until something comes along. This town has you written all over it.
    I want that little "oldest house in Port Costa" house. Tell me if it comes up for sale. I will make Lisa buy it and then I'll move into it and pay her rent...
