Strolling Toward Astoria


Crown Princess docked in Astoria

Two days after departing San Francisco the Crown Princess docked in Astoria, Oregon.  We’ve been to Astoria several times now, and this small town of under 10,000 people never disappoints in presenting lots of photo opportunities.  To take full advantage of such chance encounters with color and composition, Ursula and I opted to walk into town from the dock.  Almost immediately we stumbled upon a fun excuse to take a portrait.  Here’s Ursula posing for me:

If we had chosen the trolley we would have also missed the Maritime Memorial Park:

Even though the day was overcast and gloomy, the stroll along the water’s edge offered some intriguing shots of the Cannery Pier, the Astoria-Megler Bridge, and other fun images:

And, of course, you’ll also find splashes of color along the way:
