We were meeting for the first time , SP friends for a long time, and yes that is Astoria,, I live in Ocean Park, WA,, but a life long Oregonian!! moved to O.P. WA for my DH's health, needed cooler weather.. nice of you to notice the picture~~Annie
Wow the picture really does look like it could be winter on the river with the coast range in the background. I am getting an itch to get back to the beach again. I went a couple times in 2014. Took GD driving on the beach between Gearhart and Fort Stevens with her permit. She loved it. As she said, "Not that many people in the world can claim to have driven on a Pacific Ocean beach."
Now that Christmas is over, I keep thinking of things I can do to the garden. Only one more month till we can plant peas and onion sets. WooHoo!. Your friends from my neck of the woods sounds familiar. I keep thinking they might be Clatskanie and visited Rainier. Now that I am retired from work, I joined the St. Helens ToPS group instead of driving to the Rainier group.
