We did something different for Spring Break this year. We kept it local. While it was not super hot out, we still had a great time. I came home feeling refreshed and with my batteries re-charged. Britta and I took off early as her spring break was the week before her brother's (the problem of having one kid in the public school and one in a private school issue!) Britta and I had been reading a book called Our Only May Amelia where the heroine travels to Astoria, the big city to stay with her aunt. The book takes place in 1899 and got me intrigued about imagining what Astoria was like in 1899. Turns out Astoria is named after John Astor who settled Astoria as a fur trading outpost and is really the first settlement west of the Rockies! Anywho, the history is pretty interesting but I won't go into that. Astoria has a good, arty vibe that I liked. Andy and I ended up going back to Astoria for Art Walk on Saturday night and found it really fun and lively.
Britta and I left Astoria and headed for Seaview, Washington to stay in a vintage travel trailer. Photos and comments to follow.
