This should have been our walkway into the building, but when it rains so hard, the water backs up, turning it into a pool.
I was messing with the camera. Nice.
Our downspout - I finally got it in focus.
This is the view just beyond our front door, a very empty River Walk. In nice weather, the Astoria waterfront trolley comes along the tracks. The wood stairs go up to a small park area with a big built-in table and benches. Usually a bunch of guys sit there and drink, so it's not too inviting, but then it's also the only place in Astoria I've ever gotten flea bites (no thanks), so I just look at it and sit elsewhere, like on the benches down by the water.
