Pier 11 on the Waterfront

Astoria, Oregon ~ January 23, 2010

For those not familiar with Astoria, Pier 11 is one of the town's most recognizable buildings. It sits on the water at between 10th and 11th Streets. In fact, the entire building is over water. The River Walk and trolley run between the railing and the building, and in real life you can see the water lapping down in the dark space on the right. The windows look pretty when you can see the sky on the other side, but at least one of the suites is no longer empty. I featured Malama Day Spa and the view from aloft in an earlier post, and Riki Fleischmann and her spa are featured this week on the cover of Coast Weekend. Speaking of windows, note that there's an unusual item displayed in one of the downstairs windows: a motorcycle. The location houses a restaurant (Rollin' Thunder BBQ), and the owner loves bikes.

I would love to visit this place! It has so much character and charm! Great photo, too!

Been very busy of late...I'll try to visit more often! :-)

My goodness, Pier 11 is looking pretty good! Did the Rolling Thunder replace something else...? Used to like eating dinner there but last time a lady (the hostess?) was sitting at an outdoor type table inside the pier but outside the restaurant. Just not a good ambiance. Will have to give it another try perhaps. Beautiful view as you can sit right over the water...often see sea lions...

Oh gees...forgot what I was writing. The lady was smoking outside the restaurant..and then asked to seat us.

Sueso, I always enjoy your comments! I don't remember what was there before Rollin' Thunder, but it's been there for at least 5 or 6 years, I think.
