exploring we will go- oysterville

A while back we made the promise to each other to always make time to seek adventure as a family (you can read about it here). Exploring new places and going outside is a big part of our daily lives and once in a while I like to share a little peek into our adventures.

Just 1 hour north of us and across the Columbia River is Washington's Long Beach Peninsula. With the Pacific Ocean to the west, the Columbia River and Willapa Bay to the east, the peninsula is 28 miles of absolute BEAUTY and what we call oyster country! We've explored the area but still have lots of places yet to see. Recently we took advantage of a sunny day and went on a little afternoon trip all the way to the northern tip of the peninsula to Oysterville. Oysterville is a tiny community frozen in time that looks just like it did more than a century ago. A church, schoolhouse and houses from the 1870's remain and the entire community is on the National Historic Register. I've seen a lot of beautiful places but this tiny community on the edge of Willapa Bay is one of the most magical places I've been. I grew up reading Anne of Green Gables and something about Osterville made me feel as if I was transported into my favorite childhood story.

That is so deeply beautiful. It reminds me of Scandanavia. I love the small panes of glass around the larger ones in the windows, and the lichens on the picket fence. I need to go there NOW! (despite being on the opposite side of the planet...) Thank you so much for sharing this lovely day out with us.

That little chapel in your last photo was where my sister and her husband got married 16 years ago. They, too, were smitten by Oysterville. Your photos brought up many lovely memories. Thank you!
