Recently, it was our pleasure to traverse this magnificent country of ours on an extended road trip. Contrary to what we are told on the nightly news, America is alive and well.

In the course of our travels, we had the pleasure of spending several days in Astoria. What a lovely place to visit.

We loved staying on the river in a perfect room at the Crest Motel. Our meals were delicious, especially at the Baked Alaska. Your Columbia River Maritime Museum is the best and we loved following in Lewis and Clark's footsteps. We even got our oil changed at Lum's Auto Center where we received red-carpet treatment. The view from the top of the Column was superb.

We can truly say that Astoria was the gem of the ocean.
