Regatta: US Coast Guard Search and Rescue demo
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.
