This post is a continuation from yesterday's photo of the Maritime Memorial Park. In that case, the angle showed the park's situation beside the river. Today I wanted to show some of the epitaphs. Click on the image and you'll be able to see the pictures better and read the text.
Just by looking at them, you can tell that each entry recalls an interesting life and an interesting story. Let's bring one to life. I never knew about this until I'd been in Astoria for awhile. One of the oldest dates includes an image in the upper right of two horses trudging through the river dragging nets. It's called "horse seining," and here are links to three photos showing horses in the Columbia and the men that worked with them. (Photo 1, Photo 2, photo 3.) Green Island is upriver from Astoria beyond Tongue Point.
I think there are plenty of allusions here for a Watery Wednesday. And for ABC Wednesday? W = Water and Wall, and probably a lot more.
