28 December 2008
I had the opportunity at the beginning of December to spend some time in Astoria because of work. And if you're along the Oregon coast during that time (or any other month ending in "e-r") you'll find fresh crab!
I always like to walk downtown and do some window shopping. There are galleries with local art, a Scandinavian import shop, a Danish bakery, a fun toy store, as well as a handful of coffee shops and restaurants.
I can't believe I've never seen the Astoria Column lit up for the season before! It was bone-chillingly cold with the wind that night, but still a fun stop to make.
