Astoria, Oregon ~ June 8, 2012
My "street," the Astoria Riverwalk, is so extraordinary that I've shown it many times on this blog. It runs along the river the whole length of town and beyond. Here you see a fraction of it in the foreground. It connects to Marine Drive (parallel, beyond the stop sign). Here it also intersects with 15th Street, which takes you up the hill to the college. The Riverwalk never looks much like a street, but like an alleyway, parking lot, paved walkway, boardwalk, or trolley trestle. I showed the view west from here in yesterday's post. Unaccountably, any building fronting the Riverwalk bears the address of some other street. For instance, the address just behind me is 1490 Marine Drive, and you can see how that would confuse someone actually looking for it on Marine Drive.
Many thanks to Julie and Peter for giving City Daily Photo bloggers
