Sunset in Paradise

Astoria Sunset ~ June 27, 2013

Guest Blogger Kathy Patenaude captured our amazing sunset tonight from her front door.  This evening so many people here in Astoria posted stunning photos of the sunset it was hard to decide.  How wonderful we all stopped and shared such a magical night.

A Dog Day Afternoon

River Walk East -- June 2013

The Astoria River Walk is truly one of our finest gems.  This is on the east portion heading to Alderbrook.

Alderbrook

Alderbrook ~ June 2013

This is a view of Alderbrook from the east end of the River Walk.  I've been exploring the full extent of the trail as it wraps around Alderbrook and loops back to the trail.

There's Something About That House...

18th Street & Irving ~ June 21, 2013
This is the quintessential "haunted house" -- at least, in my imagination!  Ran into a friend taking a walk in the neighborhood and she took a photo too.

Long House

Fort Stevens State Park ~ Approximately 2005

This is one of my favorite photos showing the inside of the longhouse at Fort Steven's.  The photo was taken by a Fort Steven's State Park ranger whose name has escaped me.  Hopefully, someone might recognize it so we can provide proper credit!

Fire Station No. 2

Uppertown Astoria ~ June 2013

This historic red brick building was originally constructed in 1896 as part of the popular North Pacific Brewery which closed its doors in 1915 due to prohibition. In 1928, the City of Astoria renovated the building for use as the Uppertown Fire Station #2. The station was decommissioned by the City in 1960 and used for equipment storage until 1989 when the Uppertown Firefighters Museum opened.

Vendor View

Lucky Farms at Astoria Sunday Market ~ May 12, 2013

This is taken backstage behind the scenes from the Lucky Farms booth at Astoria Sunday Market.  They are busy all day making bouquets -- no rest until the day is done!  Great people and their bouquets are hugely popular.

The Dirty D

Desdemona Club on Marine ~ June 12, 2013

The Dirty D!  Another iconic night spot in Astoria with an illicit past of shanghaiing young men through trap doors that dropped them into waiting boats below.  At one time the Dirty D was waterfront property before the highway evolved around it.

We Ain't Quaint!

Annie's ~ June 13, 2013

There was something interesting about the infamous Annie's sign juxtaposed to the Dead End street sign.  Annie's is an institution in Astoria and reflects the gritty side of what built Astoria.  As they say, "We ain't quaint!"

Sea of Lions

East Mooring Basin ~ May 2013

It's hard to resist posting occasional pictures of the local characters.  This was a mighty pride of sea lions and what a life!  I've never seen a creature enjoy napping as much as sea lions (and cats).

Another great day at Astoria Sunday Market!  If you share your best shot of the Market there is a chance to win a glass souvenir SHOP ASTORIA coin made by Fernhill Glass and good for discounts from any vendor (or just keep as a special treasure!)

Barbey Maritime Center ~ May 2013

These are the refurbished windows of the old train station that stood in neglect for many years.  Owned by the Columbia River Maritime Museum, they recently completed a long-time restoration project of this magnificent building.
