Arlo Guthrie at the old Port Washington Store

For the first time in a few years I made it down to the old store in Port Washington on North Pender Island. Unfortunately the store has been closed for quite a few years and is beginning to show signs of neglect, a real shame if you value the historical aspect of the Pender Islands. What potential this property would have as a gallery or sea kayak rental company?

Someone has posted an old Arlo Guthrie record cover on the store facade however, almost fitting: Outlasting The Blues. Wish the LP had been inside, would have given it a listen.
