I made a little video to show you the back porch. I think I will make more of these, as they may help you decide to email me for more information before buying it.

In this you also see Ellen's potting shed (darker turquoise color), and the very West end of my 24 X 36 foot garage/workshop building (lighter green).

Here is a picture from today (6 July, 08) showing the back porch. Also two from the other day showing the view looking in from the front door toward the sliding glass door to the back and one looking in toward the front door, showing the living area. It measures about 15 feet by about 26 1/2 feet. You can see how the inside and outside living areas flow together. I am hoping to get new paint and new kitchen counters and cabinets installed this Winter. We will see how that goes, eh?

We had a plant sale over the Memorial Day weekend. I will be holding an on-going garage sale in the big shop building. Of course you may want to use it to park your hot rod in...Here are a couple pictures from the weekend.


Since it was such a NICE weekend, I decided I would get a couple of pictures of the back yard as seen from the hot tub for you:

Here is a great article about the Long Beach Peninsula from the Seattle Times. I want you to know as much as possible so that you can make an informed decision about buying this house and property.

What's the draw?

The ocean! And a 28-mile stretch of beach that makes (debatable) claims at being the world's longest. An eclectic mix of funky old beach cottages, modern condos and vintage hotels. There's a rewarding array of foodie-inspired eateries of every ilk. Plus Jake the Alligator Man at Marsh's Free Museum.

What's new this summer?

A "Blues & Seafood" evening joins the annual Jazz & Oysters event in August. Cape Disappointment State Park hosts a free Waikiki Beach Concert Series on the second and fourth Saturdays of June, July and August (2 p.m.). And Washington's coastal recreational salmon fishery has a new allure with the recent closure of salmon fishing off California and Oregon.

YOU ARE GOING TO LOVE OWNING A HOME HERE!

Within walking distance of our house you can find gorgeous wetlands with herons, eagles, ducks, beavers, and a host of other beautiful creatures. Turn the other direction and walk West a couple of blocks and you can see sunsets over the Pacific Ocean, whirling formations of shore-birds, a fishing boat offshore, or a drive on the beach.


Adventure further on your way to Astoria, Oregon (more about Astoria later) you come to the 4.2 mile Astoria - Megler bridge over the Columbia River, which Ellen has walked in a fund raiser. Turn North and you can drive (or ride your bike or kayak if you are adventurous) to the pristine and bounteous Willapa Bay (best oysters in the world!).

CLICK HERE to see pix of the beach and Ocean Park (about a mile and a half North), where you can watch an old time red flashing stop light at the corner with Doc's tavern (coldest glass of beer for MILES around!) kitty corner from the drugstore, Jack's Country Store kitty corner from the Eagles club.

One for the main hi-way (two lane), and one for the back road. There are only 2 roads into this peninsula....same two roads out...you will find this to be a VERY quiet and relaxing place at the beach to live.
