I've Got Company at the End of the World!

Near Chinook, Washington ~ December 2, 2011

Please welcome Amy, who has just started Long Beach Peninsula Daily Photo. I woke up this morning to an e-mail telling me I was no longer the only "City Daily Photo" blogger between Portland and the Pacific Ocean. In a minute you can read Amy's letter, but first let me show you where she lives. I've posted our Astoria-Megler Bridge many times, but I have not shown much of what you'll find on the other side. If you turn left and take the highway alongside the Columbia River, you will eventually reach the hills on the horizon. This is the Long Beach Peninsula in Washington. The southern end forms the north side of the mouth of the Columbia, and the peninsula continues a long way to the right. Amy will delight you with its wonders as she gets going on her new project.

A short aside: Back when City Daily Photo still had a functioning web site (I'm shedding a tear here and hoping it will come back), I looked in vain for other affiliated bloggers from my area. It seemed there were none (we have some very interesting bloggers around, but with different objectives). Needless to say, I was happy and surprised to find the following in my morning e-mail:


Hi from across the river!

Hi Sheryl,

I've been following your Astoria Daily Photo blog for several years. When I was living away from the coast, I looked forward to the photo updates every day. It was a way of staying connected to this area I love so much. Thanks for that.

I'm now living full-time in Long Beach and was inspired by your blog to start a daily photo blog for this side of the river. Would you be willing to link to it on your website?

It's here:

I'm just getting started so there's only a handful of entries, but I'm having a great deal of fun exploring the area on the hunt for good photos.



Sheryl again. Hop on over, take a look and leave Amy a comment, OK?

End of the world? I don't think so. I thought you thought Astoria was the center of the universe! :-))

Beauty of a shot. And I'll check out Amy's blog.
