This is taken backstage behind the scenes from the Lucky Farms booth at Astoria Sunday Market. They are busy all day making bouquets -- no rest until the day is done! Great people and their bouquets are hugely popular.

The Dirty D! Another iconic night spot in Astoria with an illicit past of shanghaiing young men through trap doors that dropped them into waiting boats below. At one time the Dirty D was waterfront property before the highway evolved around it.

It's hard to resist posting occasional pictures of the local characters. This was a mighty pride of sea lions and what a life! I've never seen a creature enjoy napping as much as sea lions (and cats).

These are the refurbished windows of the old train station that stood in neglect for many years. Owned by the Columbia River Maritime Museum, they recently completed a long-time restoration project of this magnificent building.

This image was taken of a Hawk using a driftwood teepee as his crows nest to survey the land. As I continued to creep up on him to get a better shot the hawk suddenly flew off and not far from me on the beach attacked a seagull! It was wrestling with the gull on the sand when a crow joined in on the fray. I tried to get close but some people in a truck also saw the action and decided to rescue the struggling gull. My instincts were to let Mother Nature take its course (the gull may have been sick; the hawk may have had newborns to feed; or maybe the hawk was just young and not sure what to hunt). There were a lot of hawks and eagles gliding over the grassy fields near the Jetty this afternoon -- I've never seen so many in one place before.
