Blue sky. Interesting patterns in the tree branches.
We're walking down Marine Drive from The Animal Store towards Astoria Coffee House to get . . . yeah, surprise . . . coffee and brunch. The light was right for a photograph of the houses on the hill. You'll have to click on the photo to see much.
Another set of interesting branches and colors, this time from inside Astoria Coffee House.
This is the former fish market just east of the big Pier 11 red building. We almost rented it for The Animal Store two years ago, but it wasn't quite right for us. I love the old board planks on the walk/pier/parking area, or whatever you call it, and hope they'll never disappear. Look how empty the place is. It may not be good for business, but I love that feeling of space, emptiness and quiet today. Astoria has so many moods.
Pier 11 with the new steak house - entrance just beyond the blue truck. Pier 11 has intrigued and/or haunted Astoria for quite a long time. I did not tweak the color. It was that kind of day.
Walking back from Pier 11, I took this in front of the Wet Dog. It's just an absolutely gorgeous day.
Here's where the ferry to Washington used to dock. Now it's a picturesque ruin, but you can walk out on the pier on the left. It's actually a small waterfront "park" (no, not the grassy kind, but a designated historic area).
The pilot boat docks next to the old ferry berth.
Scenic pilings at the old ferry dock.
