Once we headed to the Oregon coast the adventure didn't stop. Our first destination was Astoria home of the "Goonies" btw-Astoria is not in any danger of having a golf course built anywhere near it. Its hilly streets rival San Francisco.
The famous Astoria column
Better view. It reminded me of things I'd seen in Europe.
We climbed all the stairs.
From the top you could see as far as the fog.
Which was a great view of the mighty Columbia entering the Pacific.
From Astoria we headed to a very cool shipwreck in Fort Stevens State Park
Having never lived near an ocean in my whole life the whole "times of the tides" are a little foggy to me. It was just serendipity that we came at low tide. It was VERY cool.
