On this, a beautiful sunny day, our drive of 30 miles was more than just easy, it's was wonderful. This move took us over the bridge connecting Astoria, OR with Washington. The bridge spans the Columbia River near it's mouth of the Pacific Ocean. It's here that Lewis and Clark ended their trip and stayed for several months preparing for their return. They and others in the Corps of Discovery left footprints all over this region.
Upon our arrival, we quickly setup then set off for our long awaited beach venture. We try to walk 4 to 6 miles every other day. This is an ideal location for our walks because we can choose such a variety of terrain, in which to do it. We can walk on pavement, soft sand, hard packed sand or even gravel trails. But, no matter where we go there is always something interesting to see.
Our first weekend here, is the event called Sandsations in town. It's an annual sand sulpting contest. we're looking forward to that and seeing the talent. So come along with us and discover what Lewis and Clark saw!
