Out of the Oregon Coastal towns I’ve been to, Astoria so far has been my favorite. We took Mr. N last year. I’ve been wanting to go back so when Sage’s human suggested going to the coast, I nominated Astoria which is the oldest settlement on the West Coast. There’s a trolley that you can take that does a history tour (they allow dogs… at least small ones).
I wanted to go to the Bowpicker for lunch but unfortunately they were closed. They are a fish and chips food boat and I always recommend them to people visiting.
He likes to think of himself as an ace navigator. Land ho!
Mr. N says would you like some fries with that?
We ended up eating lunch at the Fort George Brewery. The boyfriend likes their beer. Their patio is dog friendly. I put Mr. N up on the railing for a photo and the table next to us remarked that Mr. N was actually posing for the photo. He loves the camera.
We stopped by the Blue Scorcher Bakery & Cafe next door for dessert. I highly recommend their chocolate ginger cookies. Mr. N finds bakeries boring. He’s not a fan of grains. Give him meat!
Mr. N found this and thought about eating this giant can of salmon all by himself.
The dogs aren’t allowed in the Oregon Maritime Museum (at least I’m pretty sure they’re not, we didn’t try) so they posed by the anchor outside.
Mr. N thought about running away and joining the coast guard.
Or maybe becoming a pirate. I think he would look good in an eye patch.
There’s a glass studio behind the brewery so we took a quick peek at the wares. Lovely colors.
On our way out of Astoria, we visited the Goonies house. I have to admit I’ve actually never seen the movie but it’s on my list. It’s a private residence and there are signs saying not to go beyond a certain point. There were a steady stream of visitors when we went by.
