Long Beach Peninsula, WA

Yesterday Mary and I explored the 28 mile long, Long Beach Peninsula.

First stop was the Washington State University’s Cranberry Farm and Museum. Then on to Nahcotta, WA, the Oyster Capital of the World. Four miles north we toured Oysterville, one of the oldest communities in the state established in 1854. Then to the City of Long Beach where we saw the World’s Largest Frying Pan, visited Marsh’s Free Museum (a really unusual place), and the Kite Museum. Every year Long Beach hosts an International Kite Competition.

When we returned to our campsite we enjoyed the great oysters and clams we bought at the Oysterville Seafood Farm.

Here’s the plaque of Oysterville.
