Bonus Photo! This is from the Schermerhorn family and what they see from their window. The star of the image is Hamilton the pig. I confess, this photo is a bit of self-indulgence because I fostered Hamilton for a month or so prior to the Schermerhorn's adopting him. The original family who owned Hamilton loved him dearly but were in transition. He now has a wonderful home with a couple of goat buddies, chickens and ducks to keep him company. For those not familiar with the coast, Seaside is only about 20 miles or so south of Astoria.
Here is Hamilton hamming it up!
