Long Beach part 4 (last post) - amazing museum

Our last day we made it over the bridge to Astoria...we were a little sorry we didn't make it there earlier.  The highlight of Astoria has to be the Colombia River Maritime is a world class museum and our 5 hours there went by very fast.  If you ever find yourself close to Astoria and you have even the slightest appreciation for water, boats, history, coast guard rescues, or anything else maritime, you HAVE to stop and check out this amazing museum.  Below are some snapshots...make sure you click here to see the full album I shot.

Long Beach part 2 - Lighthouses, Pelicans, and more!

All the pictures, click here...

Here are the best of my pictures of the two Lighthouses and other various shots.  These lighthouses mark the Colombia entrance; both of them are on the north at Cape Dissapointment, the other is a little further North and "north head."  Another thing we found was surfing...yes, surfing...and the beach they were surfing on?  Waikiki beach of course...just like Hawaii, only different.  It was VERY cold.  Make sure you see All the pictures, click here...

Long Beach part 1

Julie and I had a wonderful opportunity to follow up a very difficult time in our lives with some Rest down at Long Beach.  Of course, I brought my camera along and managed to snap a few shots.  I've divided them up a are pictures from the first couple of days when we rarely left the house...(I read 5 books in 8 days).  So, given that fact, these pics are mostly sunsets from the first 3 nights.  Make sure to check them all out here.
