Astoria Oregon is one of those places that evokes that de`ja´ vu feeling in me,  feels like home.

First glimpse of the Astoria-Megler Bridge, it connects Washington and Oregon and kind of dominates the town of Astoria.

A view of the bridge from Oregon

Best surprise of the day...hundreds of SEALS!

Around town

Vault Lights, Sidewalk Prisms, Skylights to the Underworld!
Most of these glass squares found on sidewalks were to provide light for an "underground" part of a city. They are old enough to be made of "amethyst" glass (when lead was no longer used in glass, but manganese was added, causing the purpling effect). I would love to be looking through them from below.

Another example of Sidewalk Prisms and a story?

Astoria has some truely funky thrift stores
