In keeping with yesterdays topic...

Yesterday I posted this photo of an old building in Astoria, OR. The comments were awesome! So many people have visited this little town and had a variety of great memories of the time they spent there. So I thought I would round out the rest of my week posting some old photos I took from a visit there a few years back. This will get a few photos a chance to be shown that I have never thought about posting since Astoria is outside of my normal Mt Hood area, so this should be fun! This one was taken from the downtown waterfront area looking out towards the Columbia River and in the distance, the 4 mile long Astoria-Megler Bridge, which connects Oregon and Washington.


  1. lovely capture. Happy WW!

  2. I'm definitely gonna have to make another trip down there. I can't imagine not saying that I've crossed the Astoria Megler Bridge at least once in my lifetime! lol

  3. I love my Oregon fix whether it's from Astoria OR Mt Hood; many thanks!!!!

  4. What a lovely, clear photo.

  5. Oh I'm sooo excited you are posting more and for stopping by my blog! Thanks a million!

    I loved todays photo! :)

  6. I've always wanted to visit the northwest. Thanks for sharing. If you have time, check out my post here www.adventureswithjessica.blogspot.com . I’m trying really hard to increase my number of followers and could use your help! Thanks!

  7. I have a photo very similar to this from our week-long visit to Astoria in May 2008. We had such a lovely time exploring the gorgeous area and eating some wonderful seafood! We drove over the bridge several times and this the Astoria side of the bridge it's actually pretty steep - if you have a fear of heights like I do, it's a bit tough to do - but so worth it! It was a lot of fun seeing all the large ships pass by too! Thanks for the memories!


    Water as river or puddle or frost;
    Water that’s roaming alone and seems lost;
    Water that looks like sharp daggers of ice;
    Water that’s frozen as small as white rice;
    All of this water, no matter where found
    Will one day seep back far, far underground
    And surface again for fountain and flush—
    Water, ah, water, you make things so lush!
