Saturday morning. The Sunday Traveler and a friend headed across the Carquinez Strait to the little town of Port Costa. I’ve taken you there with me once before, remember? That little daytrip to that quaint little town across the water from where I live. These are becoming the trips of late that occupy my time and travel. A time of taking it a little easy for a while. Relaxing and just enjoying the treasures that surround me. There is so much.
Port Costa, on the Strait, was holding their annual yard sale yesterday. A fantastic gathering of neighbors, friends, people from the local areas to find wonderful, mostly vintage, treasures.
A little town founded in 1879, and the charm persists.
That’s the fire station above. The population in 2010 was 190 people; no current data can be found on a search while writing this post, but I’m imagining there are not too many more people living here since then. Most shops are closed during the week, and open only on weekends; so this weekend sale is a BIG deal with a lot of people visiting.
It was a very festive atmosphere.
And a lot of interesting things to look at and consider for purchase. Let’s shop around.
And when anyone got a little hungry, they could stop for an ice cream or cold root beer
And then head out again
It was a grand day, 20 minutes from home.
There’s home across the water.
