What We Saw at the Sea Shore...

Here are a few of the things we saw while visiting the northern Oregon Coast (click on photos for larger views)...


An old warehouse along Astoria's waterfront.


Feeding Noah's train addiction... :-)


Playing at the Astoria Firefighter's Museaum.


The Seaside Aquarium was a big hit for both kids.


Noah: "Hey look, it's a school of fish, and there go the teachers!" :-)


Captain Noah feeds the seagulls...

It's in my blood...



I remember going to the coast when I was a kid; not when it was sunny and warm like the other kids, but when it was raining and windy -- because that was the way my dad liked it. Now that I am older, there is just something about stormy weather at the beach that calls to me. Sure, the sunshine is beautiful, but it doesn't stir the depths of my soul quite the way a gusty wind and a raging sea do. Needless to say, Thursday's storm was one of the highlights of my week (click on photos for larger view)...


The seas were calm for the first half of the week...


...but things had changed considerably by Thursday.


Sand blasting against your face at 70 mph doesn't feel so good...


Back from the Beach

We have returned from our trip to Seaside, where we had a wonderful week of family fun. Here are a few photos from the beach (click on photos to enlarge)...
