Adventures in Garibaldi and Barview

Posted by Starr Lara / April 25, 2011

My hubby and I have stayed in Garbibaldi and Barview many times in our 31 years of marriage. We have made many memories over the years! We were in Barview camping the weekend Princess Di died. We heard Jonny Lang on the radio for the first time there as well.

We’ve combed all the little second hand shops, antique shops, and the Garibaldi Pharmacy that’s full of postcards and fun souvenirs. While there I purchased a little fish photo frame with the name of Garibaldi at the bottom. At the grocery store in Garibaldi we bought T Bones to grill on the barbecue at our Barview camp site, and shopped at the little grocery store near the entrance to Barview too.

We live on Garibaldi Street in Hillsboro, and people often mistakenly think we live in Garibaldi on the Oregon Coast. We can only dream.

Due to a long 18 month stretch of unemployment, we’ve not been able to return to Garibaldi in a few years, but our hearts are always there and our memories are full of Garbaldi sea breezes!
