Sad times: I had a dentist appointment this week and one next week. Turns out next week is the tooth out. Which means I was totally unprepared for a lecture on needing to floss better AND lacking awesome painkillers to make that lecture more fun. Boo.
This means you’ll have to wait till next week to hear how smart I am on drugs*.
Anyhow, way overdue trip recap continues!
It’s part of why we drink so much here. Numbs the grey.
Astoria is at the mouth of the Columbia River. There used to be canneries and things here. But the canneries mostly moved where they could better catch dolphins or something, so the piers have been remade into other stuff. Including a tuna museum. Not joking.
We went for breakfast at Coffee Girl out on one of the piers. You could actually drive *on* the wooden pier, but that seemed terrifying. So we parked and walked across. Which meant cars drove past us AND you could see the spots where the wood MOVED when you walked. Equally terrifying. Good choice me!
And finally we’d killed enough time to justify eating at what we’d been told was the best spot in Astoria
And now, since The Goonies was filmed in Astoria, making this almost relevant, my favorite thing on the internets today:
Everyday I’m shufflin’
*Unless you went to college with me.
