Last week my daughter & I took a long awaited trip to visit my sister Paula & her family in Astoria Oregon.
I felt like "Sammy the seal" when he took a trip from the zoo, Looking & pointing at everything. I'm sure it was obviose. I was from out of town. All of the greenery was facinating, after living in the dessert for so many years.
After arriving in Portland, we ate at a fabulouse restraunt & whent to a huge book store, "Powell Books". It is amazing. If you ever get a chance you have to go there!
It was rainy & chilly most of the time we where there & even snowed in Astoria, wich is very unusual!
We didn't hang out at the beach much. It was just to chilly for that!
Puala's husband Riff was a great tour guide & took us to see some awsome light houses!
We ate lots of great sea food. My favorite place was "The Wet Dog". It is a pub in Astoria. They had the best fish & chips and you could see the boats & river from the dinning room.
Paula & Riff fed us very well. My pants are a bit tighter since the trip!
Paula took us shopping & to some great art galleries.
There are so many things to see & do in the area. We will just have to go back & do more some day!!!
