One of the difficulties of being a traveling student family was not having a lot of control over our schedule. One thing I did like, though, was staying in each place for about a month. It was enough time to finish seeing the obvious touristy places, and move on to exploring.
And one Saturday in Astoria we did just that.
We walked along the wharf and took the kids out onto the pier, which they thought was fascinating.
We also took a trolly along the coastline.
And crossed the famous Astoria bridge into Washington.
What is your favorite part of exploring new places?
