On Saturday, in Ilwaco, there is a very nice market at the Port of Ilwaco. There were some veggie vendors, some with berries that looked totally delicious and made me want to make jam and lots of arts and crafts. It's a nice selection. You can get something to eat, either from a tent or from one of the restaurants located along the way. There was even a chowder truck!
I love to photograph artist's palettes and Don Nisbett kindly allowed me to get a shot of his. Don is a local Northwest artist. I love that palette!

Ilwaco is a true, working port and there are many charter companies available to take you out for some salmon fishing or sturgeon, is that is your preference. (Not mine! No sturgeon for this one. Hate the stuff!)
We had a truly fabulous dinner at Jimella & Nanci's Market Cafe in near-by Klipson Beach. We'd been told that was the place that all foodies must visit and we were not led astray. I had the pan fried oysters and they were just about the best plate of oysters I have ever had, and certainly the prettiest.
The oysters were crunchy on the outside and like hot custard on the inside, just the way I love them. I bought a couple of jars of their jam to take home, one huckleberry and one Bing cherry. Doesn't that sound good?
The sunset wasn't bad, either!
