We took off this morning with friends John and Karen and headed across the bridge at Astoria over into Washington, where we found a couple of lighthouses…and lunch of chowder and fish and chips. Yummm!
First off, we saw North Head Lighthouse, circa 1898:
And saw many birds living and nesting on the cliffs across the bay from it (boy, do they make a mess, but their quano is an important part of their nest making:
Then we moved on to the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center, with this lighthouse on the point at Cape Disappointment (the name says it all, as L&C were very disappointed in the lack of food and shelter found there):
It was a fun day, but being near the water is always a good thing in our book. Tomorrow is our final group day, but don’t think the adventure is ending. Nope, Dick and I head to New Hampshire.
Stay tuned, y’all!
