I followed my new Australian acquaintance over to the local museum. Unlike the heavily curated and organized within centimeters of existence -this is an exuberant exhibit of the local settlers. Somewhat organized, the building is chock full of items from the early white settlements on. Ranging from household items to signs, farm machinery, frogs, wildflowers, musical instruments and various collections of medical & dental instruments, there is pretty much something fun for just about everyone in the collection.
There is also an exhibit about the collaboration with SkyLab (yes, that SkyLab).
I spent a happy hour wandering around and taking a few pictures before sitting down to write out the obligate postcards. My collection of magnets seems to be growing as well. Since I can stick them on the wall, I am avoiding thinking about the weight till I have to complete my final packing.
After this current stop at the library, I will still have a couple of hours to explore the shore line and see if any birds, sea lions or whales grace me with their presence.
