Saturday Morning - Yard Sailing!!!

Hi there!

Well, yesterday evening, Gilbert did a bit of research
and found a web site that listed some local
garage sales, for Saturday.

Soooooo, this morning we headed out to
do some "Yard Sailing".

Gilbert wasn't lucky, but I managed
to nab a quilting book,
by Carol Doak, even!


It must have been written before the internet....

I couldn't find anything in there that mentioned
web sites and web addresses and such.

But, when I glanced at it briefly,
I realized that it was a PRICELESS BOOK....

for only 2 bucks!!!!!

One of the flea markets, was "Up Town".

Now, we've always called our city center "Up" town....

I was always told it was because our city is so "hilly" -
supposedly comparable to San Francisco and
that the city center (here) is actually UP town.

Anyhow, I digress... once again.... *grin*

On our way to one of the flea markets, UP town,
I passed by a street and caught this site!

Figured that I might as well grab a shot,
for my friend Elaine and her hubby!

Notice how steep our streets are?!?!?

And those boats sure are huge, eh?!??!


Countin' the days till Elaine's visit, in October!!!

Wow...this COULD be a street in San Francisco... similar looking buildings too!

And the size of that ship is AMAZING!! Counting 123 days until we leave...leave the light on for us and get that "Tim Horton" coffee ready!

We're a coming to you...!!! Hugs, Elaine in SLO,Ca
