Regatta: US Coast Guard Search and Rescue demo

Coast Guard Demo, Astoria, Oregon - Photo by Jamie Schluckebier Jamie Schluckebier took this photo and sent it for today's blog post. The photo was taken Saturday evening during a US Coast Guard Search and Rescue demo as part of Regatta Weekend in Astoria. As most of you know by now, this massive body of water is the Columbia River, separating Oregon from Washington, and the bridge is the Astoria-Megler bridge, which joins the two states. The picture was taken from the 17th Street Pier adjacent to the Maritime Museum. I've been in Bend all week, so I missed the festivities. I've had a good time here, but I wish I'd been able to see that event! Thanks so much, Jamie, for sending this dramatic photo.

'Tis very dramatic and very many neat elements combined!

Yes, I can imagine seeing this in person would be quite an experience...but then, I'm glad you had a good time in Bend!

Great shot, impressive and powerful. Jacob is right, to be there would be an experience and an opportunity.
Welcome back!

Most people don't realize how much Coast Guard training goes on along the coast here. Good shot.
