    Astoria, WA

    July 2 in the United States

    With a day up our sleeve we left Seattle and followed the I 5 to Tacoma and Olympia before picking up the 101 and heading for the coast, Aberdeen, Westport, Long beach to name a few seaside towns.
    We have been watching the recurring land marks of and exploratory expedition of Lewis and Clark and their original outward journey finished in this North West corner of Oregon at Astoria. One year to get here and a year to return and report on their findings through unbelievably hard conditions.
    Our quest to reach these parts was to tick of a bucket list item for Carl and that was to see and drive across the nearly 3 mile span of the Astoria bridge. As I said was passed through Westport a fishing village with its memorial to lost mariners. There was a biting cold North Westerly wind blowing and my brag of going for a swim in the North East Pacific started to be re thought.
    Long Beach Washington is the longest beach in the world and after fish and chips for lunch we drove down to the shore and I at least waded knee deep into the ocean, the water was toe numbingly cold so that was it for me and Paola at least got her feet wet as well.
    From here we continued to Astoria and carl satisfied his bucket list item. It really is an amazing site, crossing the mighty Columbia River. We also visited the Astoria Tower and climber the spiral stair case inside, 164 steps up the spiral staircase certainly got the legs burning but it was worth every step.
    The 101 is an amazing road up the west coast and we are pleased to have covered so much of it in two trips.

    Maritime Museum

    August 5, 2017 in the United States

    Over in the town of Astoria we had a quick lunch at the aptly named Pig 'n' Pancakes and then headed over to the excellent Maritime Museum.

    The lifeboat pitching on the waves was one of the best museum displays I've ever seen!

    Long Beach & Astoria Column

    June 1, 2016 in the United States

    Vi fortsatte turen sydpå. Vi mødte flere interessante tømmer-industribyer på vejen, bl.a. South Bend hvor der også lå en meget flot bygning - Pacific County Courthouse. Efter et kort besøg her, kørte vi til Long Beach, hvor Lewis & Clark afsluttede deres berømte ekspedition, der gik fra østkyst til vestkyst af USA i starten af 1800-tallet. I Long Beach så vi et skelet fra en gråhval, verdens største stegepande og verdens største spisepinde samt en interessant souvenirbutik/museum.

    Turen fortsatte over en meget flot bro fra Washington ind i Oregon til Astoria. Det er momsfrit i Oregon så bilen blev tanket. Vi kørte til Astorias højeste punkt hvor Astoria Column er placeret. Et historisk monument for byen. Efter en større skoleklasse-udflugt var det vores tur til at bestige de 160 trin til toppen på en indvendig vindeltrappe. Udsigten herfra var selvfølgelig fantastisk, men det var lidt overskyet. Fra toppen kunne vi se vores næste mål som vi efterfølgende kørte videre mod - Mt. St. Helens vulkanen.
    Første del af dagen får 3,5 ud af 5 stjerner.
    Roadtrip: I dag: 156 km - i alt: 867 km

    Astoria

    January 29, 2016 in the United States

    Left home today and drove south to Longview and crossed the Columbia River to Oregon then headed west towards Astoria. Stopped at the Astoria Column and took a couple of pics of the column and Columbia River. This first part of our trip is fairly close to home, just stopped in Centralia and picked up a couple of things and moved on.
