Astoria, Oregon, is at the mouth of the Columbia River, on a tiny peninsula. This extremely long bridge connects it to Washington state, across the river.
Seen while driving into town.
A view of Astoria, not far up a hill from the river.
Our destination: Fort George Brewery.
A view further up the hill.
Astoria was the first permanent U.S. settlement on the Pacific coast.
Of course, there was a fort there.
Reconstructed (?) fort juxtaposed with more modern Astoria buildings.
The Columbia River, with Washington state across.
View of Columbia from Fort George Brewery.
Menu inside Fort George Brewery.
I got an IPA. It was tasty.
Lo and behold, in an astonishing coincidence, my brother-in-law and mother-in-law decided to take an excursion out from Portland and Vancouver (respectively). I texted a photo of them like this one to them, which led to a funny reunion.
Up next - the Warriors @ Trail Blazers.
