Is The World’s Longest Beach In Washington?

While driving around the City of Long Beach, Washington, one comes across this arch and as you can see it is claiming to be the World’s Longest Beach…

The answer to that question appears to be found in the definition or type of a beach as discussed by these two links…

Regardless of what you decide is the answer to the question…Long Beach, Washington is a very large and beautiful beach! We have really enjoyed our five-day stay in this area.

Long Beach Peninsula, Washington

We are currently camped on the Long Beach Peninsula in the State of Washington. Our location at Thousand Trails Long Beach RV Resort is shown as TT in the below Google Earth View…

On Friday late afternoon, some noisy folks camped really close to our motorhome…so we found another nice and quiet spot. That’s one of the really nice things about RVing…if you don’t like your neighbors, you simply pick-up and move!

Yesterday Mary wanted to do some more garage-sale-ing. We went to the City of Long Beach just a couple of miles north of our camping location. While wandering around I took a few photos of the local murals on the sides of buildings…

PUBLIC CITIZEN COMEDY, WHY NOT?

We’ve moved from Vancouver to the Long Beach peninsula where they have a 28 mile long “garage sale.”  Everyone sets out their wares along the road for the world at large. Must be a fun affair for the sellers. I can imagine  the barbeques and tailgate parties as neighbor greets neighbor, and everyone kind of looks over the offers. And, I can imagine the fun junk to be found here. But, darn, the weather has not been cooperative.  Maybe I could use a flash trip to Los Angeles  next month where political comedy is planned. I’ll tell you about it.

Public Citizen has earned a reputation as the countervailing force to corporate power in America.  It seems like everyone I know complains about the power corporations have exerted over our political process. Public Citizen does some heavy lifting on our behalf, which is why I support them. But hear yea, hear yea!

On June 12, Public Citizen will be traveling far outside the Beltway to Los Angeles, where their favorite progressive comedians are getting together to celebrate Public Citizen’s 40th anniversary:

Stand Up For Main Street: An All-Star Comedy Benefit for Public Citizen

This star-studded event is being organized by Public Citizen board member and Hollywood comedy writer Steve Skrovan to raise awareness of and support for our work.
I wanted to make sure you knew about this event, one of several around the country in which creative and influential people are rallying behind Public Citizen.

I’m hoping to help  get the word out about Stand Up for Main Street by blogging this event to intelligent people who care, (the readers of my blog, of course.)

And if you’ll be in Los Angeles on June 12 — or if you have friends and family there — click here to get your tickets!

They have a dynamite lineup of comedians, including:

  • Bill Burr (“Chapelle’s Show”)
  • Jeff Garlin (“Curb Your Enthusiasm”)
  • Dom Irrera (“The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson”)
  • Andy Kindler (“The Late Show with David Letterman”)
  • Paula Poundstone (NPR’s “Wait wait … Don’t tell me!”)
  • Hal Sparks (“Queer as Folk”)
  • Roy Zimmerman (satirical songwriter)
  • And more!

All proceeds from Stand Up for Main Street benefit Public Citizen

Hey, sounds like fun. Hope they record it so if you can’t make it we get to see some of it.

Ciao
