Historic Astoria is the oldest American settlement west of the Rockies. It was established
as a fur trading post prior to becoming the bustling port city, it is today. I found it colorful
and funky and wished I had more time to explore. Book stores, coffee roasters, breweries and
thrift stores beg for a return visit.
4.2 mile Astoria-Megler Bridge connects Oregon and Washington
The local PD at work, stripes!
Using a loaner camera, I went a little crazy with this setting,
makes a perfectly dull photo interesting.
Local character and proprietor of a new and used book store,
Small and fascinating museum on Pier 39
Love these trash bins; history, art and functionality.
Still a busy port...logs at sunset.
My favorite part of my visit was an early morning bike ride along the 5.1 mile River Walk.
The hotel supplied my "ride", very spiffy.
Did I mention it was a sunrise ride?
I just love this.....
