The Oriente Shine was resting comfortably on the river.
And the coots didn't seem to mind the conditions. Back in California, we used to call these birds "mud hens."
Lee and Laurel and I went to Coffee Girl for breakfast while James stayed home with Teagan. This is still one of the two places I really enjoy drinking coffee in Astoria.
Out the window, things were wet and dismal. I would have gone out on the deck for pictures and to look around, but it was one of the rare days I've seen where the doors to the outside were shut.
Inside the building at Pier 39, and just a few feet from Coffee Girl is a small museum of historic boats and local life. They have pictures and memorabilia of the days when Pier 39 was a "buzzing" (sorry) Bumblebee canning plant. It was actually Bumblebee Seafood's first cannery until it closed in 1996.
Coffee Girl still uses the original counter where the cannery workers (mostly women) ordered their coffee on breaks. You go in the door just to the right of the round sign.
When you leave or enter Coffee Girl, you pass through this open area inside the cannery building. A few new offices are moving in, and the museum and boats are to the left. The whole deal is at the end of Pier 39, sitting out in the river on pilings.
Here's looking back in the same general direction as the photo was taken above this one.
When we got back, James and Teagan were taking a snooze. I think Teagan was the snoozer, and James was watching TV. Teagan is just over a month old now. His actual due date was yesterday! He's doing great, as you can see. And he's a very nice baby, too!
