Lisa was going through our keepsake box recently and found this advertisement, from the July 10th 1952 Salem Statesman Journal. She saved it for me. I was intrigued to see that Pacific City ranked with Astoria, Depoe Bay, and Winchester Bay in terms of being able to support a business that sold and serviced bicycles in addition to selling fishing tackle.
It turns out that a neighbor has just opened a bicycle shop on the corner across from the Shell Station at the stop light in Pacific City. I’ve been eyeing the fat tire bikes for rent and sale on the corner for the last several weeks. Guess I’d better check it out soon.
Meanwhile, fishing has been slow in the estuary but hot in the ocean anytime we can get out in the dory.
My best to you on this fine day and everyday.
