We woke up early and went to the “World’s Biggest Garage Sale” at Twin Lakes Church in Aptos. Crazy. So many people and so much stuff. Michael and I looked around for a few minutes and then left.

Cool morning.  Great garage sale weather.

We stopped at a big sale in a mobile home park and ran into a candidate for county supervisor there. His name is Ed Mitchell. We’re going to vote for him as he doesn’t seem to be a total politician and seems to have the needs of us regular folks well in focus.

Pretty woman bargain hunting.

Thought this was a hardtop convertible, the owner came out and told me it is just a really fun coup.

We stopped at a couple of garage sales in Prunedale, found a few bargins and if Michael can’t get the $10.00 Kereug working, then we got burned on one. We were hungry for breakfast and went to one of our favorite restaurants, Sarita’s.  

Chips, salsa and coffee.

The rest of the day was spent cleaning the studio and doing laundry. That was our day. Hope yours was great!
