Over the weekend during my parents’ visit, we spent a day in Astoria and had such a great time. We stopped by the Astoria Column, which was covered up because it is currently being restored, and appreciated the views. We visited some shops and walked around the Astoria Sunday Market and had snacks at Blue Scorcher/lunch at Fort George Brewery. We walked out to the pier and were endlessly entertained by the sea lions, then we drove out to Cape Disappointment. It was again a disappointment! I’m just not crazy about the lighthouse there or the viewpoint or even the trail, really. One high point was Dead Man’s Cove, on the short hike to the lighthouse. My mom hung back while my Dad, Nat, Cody, and I trekked down to the water and took a bunch of photos. The goofball in the last pictures really has my heart¬†?¬†(HEY look at the heart eyes emoji in my post! Cool!)
