The pilot boat from "the fish building"

The Pilot Boat at Astoria, Oregon More about the "fish building" later. I was fortunate to be enjoying this view a couple of weeks ago, when the pilot boat charged out of its dock behind the "Baked Alaska building" (Doc's on 12th) and headed into the river to meet a ship. Note the tires attached to the sides for buffering against the dock and the sides of ships. The land you see in the background is not across the river, but our Astoria coastline is curved, culminating in a peninsula.

The salmon weather vane on the upstairs railing appears very small in this photo, but you can see it in this post.

I want to thank you all for visiting and commenting. It's been an exceptionally busy week for me in my business, and I do expect to get around and visit you in your own towns and cities more this weekend. Speaking of which, have a good one :)

Isn't it wonderful when you have a camera handy...you get to take shots like this one...

One just can feel the energy being produced by that pilot boat chugging through the water...

Thanks so much for your nice comment re: Lee and his amazing adventure(s)! Rather made my day!

I like this shot of the boat heading out to work. It also looks as though this was taken on a pretty typical gray and misty day.

Have a good weekend!

This looks very much like the little I have seen of the coast in Washington. Nice shot!
