Astoria, OR

After the Columbia River Gorge, I headed for the Oregon coast.  My current plan is to take several weeks and head down the coast.

My first stop was in Astoria, OR.  I stayed at Fort Stevens State Park.  While I’m not into history I enjoyed this park.  In addition to the military part of this park, they have a great beach and some wonderful bike trails. To be honest I didn’t go to the historical parts of the park, but I did find the shipwreck interesting.  This is the Peter Iredale, which was wrecked in 1906.

One of the things I was really looking forward to in Oregon was the sea stacks, I have seen so many pictures of these and was excited to see my first ones.  My first good view was from Ecola State Park. 

I had heard about this restaurant that I wanted to try, they only have 3 things on the menu – Fish, Chips and Soda.  But the Fish they use is Albacore Tuna.  I had never had fried tuna so I thought I would give it a try – wow, it was fantastic.  I tried to convince myself that because it was fish it wasn’t too bad for me!!  Not only was the food good, the restaurant (if you can call it that) was very different -

Yep, it was in an old boat.  The other side had stairs leading up to the cabin, where they had made a window to order from.  


  1. Enjoying your blog. You're traveling an area in NW we've also seen & really enjoyed. We have an '06 30IB Lazy Daze & we're also from Georgia. Wondering what part of GA you're from. We've lived in Knoxville, TN for past 12 years. Are you a member of the SE Lazy Daze Group? Hopefully, we'll meet up sometime in our travels.
