Coast & beach trip

Our planned trip to the Oregon coast got shortened due to roof replacement. So it became Astoria, Oregon and Case Inlet, Washington.

Astoria is very interesting - huge ships going past close to shore; the bar pilot's shuttle boat going alongside while the ship steams on. Big vistas and an outstanding viewpoint at 600 elevation. Gulls and greater scaups plentiful this week and some terns.

We made a very rainy visit to Ft Stevens St Park at the South mouth of The Columbia. Didn't see much.

The beach is our own on Case Inlet. Two days with enough sun to be able to mow! The joys of ownership!!
