I’m writing a book that is a collection of short stories that are all centered around a small town on the Oregon coast. I know this town because I used to live there, many, many years ago.
So I went back last week to reaquaint myself with the area. It had changed. But everything changes. Although I have to say Garibaldi, Oregon hadn’t changed much. It’s still a small fishing village and Coast Guard base situated in Tillamook Bay. And it’s interesting that Tillamook on one side and Rockaway Beach on the other side are both tourist towns, Garibaldi is not.
And that’s what draws me to it.
I got a lot of great pictures of the small town with a population of approximately 700, and talked to some warm and friendly inhabitants of the community. Garibaldi holds a lot of secrets, some of which will soon spill onto the pages of my book!
