Oyster Run - 9/23/2012

Today we hear a familiar sound, and after a while we realize what it is -- motorcycles!  Lots of motorcycles!  Hours and hours of riding!   Yes, we used to ride a BMW to rally after rally, and Herb spent countless hours 'telling tires and kicking lies.'  

Apparently, we weren't here last year during the Oyster Run, because we don't have a clue about what is going on.  We soon find out.  Getting anywhere in downtown Anacortes by car today is slow and tough.  

We can see from Cap Sante Marina the side streets by the Dog Park are filling up, and also the area where the Saturday Market is.

There are many, many Harleys, but we see one lone BMW.

Some streets are blocked off, and others have a Harley rider in safety vest directing traffic.  Very orderly.  

Food vendors and portable BBQ pits make sure no one goes hungry!

The event brings many locals out to view the spectacle, and we enjoy seeing people playing at their relaxing and refreshing hobby.

We are told the Oyster Run is the Pacific Northwest's answer to Sturgis!
