COASTAL CRUISING


Oregon is rather an eclectic state that invites one to practice different occupations. The bus with critters prominently displayed on the cab, and all of his bus sides really, belongs to a free spirited  man. His business is travelling the Pacific Northwest selling fresh Halibut and Seabass. 




Thought his vagabond bus style offered a spirited atmosphere to those who admired his artistic artwork. My header above is a photo of his whole bus.

    1. Tammy -- Maybe on one of your trips to visit your college sons you could find time to slip up to Oregon. Although, Colorado is a wonderful place. Yes, this bus with its handmade decor was unique for sure. thanks -- barbara

  3. "Free spirited" seems the perfect word for the bus owner. A welcome bit of eccentricity, I'm sure. I don't think we have anything of his ilk here.

    1. June -- Personally I have not seen a decorated bus like this and I have visited a lot of places. But I do find it refreshing that our state is open to a bit of eccentricity. thanks -- barbara

  5. I love the decorated bus! Had to stop and look at all the different fish! Good for the fish-man to express himself so well...and I'd sure buy his fish too. Wonder if he is just a distributor or does he go fishing himself. No boat, so maybe not. Great delightful photos, Barbara!

    1. Barbara -- this bus was sure an eye popper. I just had to stop so I could check it out. Thankfully I had my camera with me. Yes he had quite a menagerie of folk art tied, affixed, etc to to his bus. thanks -- barbara

  6. I love fish, but I have never seen any fish shops like this. I wish there were more like this - in fact, I wish there were more fish shops all together. Only supermarkets with "second hand" fresh fish ...

    1. visualnorway -- Commercial food is what we get in supermarkets now. Fresh is what we used to get. Times change -- not always the way we want them to. -- thanks -- barbara P.S. I would think Norway of all places would have lots of stores where one could buy fresh fish!

  7. How colorfully, creatively, whimsically decorated is this independent merchant's vehicle!! It's reminding my of our town dump where one creative worker creates displays from odds and ends of junk that people bring! A far cry from the big box stores is his shop!

    1. Rita -- Oh does your creative worker at your dump site sell his goods. that type of folk art (odd pieces of junk put together) seems to sell. Big box stores certainly are in the high percentiles of open shops leaving folk creations at the bottom. -- barbara
