May 22 - Astoria

We returned to Astoria the next day and while Larry and Galen were getting our fish and chips from the Bowpicker, I got a photo of the tall ship with billowing sails.  The ship to the right is a Coast Guard ship.

The four of us rode the trolley that runs along the Columbia River.  The trolley was being leased for $1 a year from the San Antonio Museum of Art when we were here in 2003.  Since that time, Astoria purchased the trolley for $50,000.00 and restored it.  Riding the trolley is really cheap entertainment.  For a mere $1.00 each we got about an hour ride on the trolley and learned about Astoria history on the way.
