Ship and Boat

Fishing boat and ship on the Columbia River at Astoria, Oregon All month long, the small boats have been out on the Columbia River from first light till last fishing for sturgeon, and the salmon season is also opening. There are a number of web sites such as this one and this one that will tell you all you could want to know about fishing the Lower Columbia River. It's big business and also big fun for sports fishers.

The small boat and the ship in this photo are not so close together, as I've used the zoom, but I understand it's a memorable expeience to see one of the big ships from a small boat.

I love the contrast between the big and small!

Sturgeon - OMG - sturgeon. Memories of childhood in Astoria and THE BEST fish in the world for my Mom's homemade fish and chips, not to mention my Dad's home-smoked sturgeon. Thanks for the stroll down memory lane!

Can't beat fresh salmon.

Those ships are so huge. I can't even begin to imagine what they must look at from a little boat up next to them!
