Thursday night was so incredible -- and on our way back from the store we noticed the covers and scaffolding were completely off of the column, and so we knew we had to go see the new restoration for ourselves. We were not disappointed!
And this is my attempt to splice together A REALLY BIG PHOTO from three photos.... I'm hoping it can be clicked on so you can see it even bigger. The Astoria Column looks just amazing now! Just breathtaking. We love going up there (even though we live right below it LOL) because it's fun to talk to people from all over who are visiting Astoria -- they always have such nice things to say about our town.
We stuck around for some of the sunset.... but then had to go find some dinner before we starved to death! And if there's one thing Goonies never say, it's DIE! Today was a day off from school, which was nice, and it was also rainy rainy rainy -- getting us ready for winter.
