The building, which includes the Harbor Master's office, is seen here across the calm water of the West Mooring Basin. I took the photo on a bright Sunday earlier in the year; lately Astoria has been living under a blanket of clouds and wet weather. There are quite a lot of boats in this harbor, which is larger than the East Mooring Basin on the other end of town. You only see a few of them here. As my friend Lisa and I walked around to the other side of the building, we heard music emanating from the top story, and discovered that some denomination was holding church services there. I really don't know much else about the use of this building, but I like the photo for its peaceful and scenic aspects.
