Astoria, Oregon

Hello all... we made it to Astoria, OR. We stayed at the KOA near Fort Stevens State Park. He was a wonderful place. They had indoor pool & jacuzzi, a playground, basketball courts, horseshoes and All you can eat Pancake breakfast. It was nice and cool while we were there also. Astoria is a border town between Oregon and Washington right on the Columbia River. There is a beautiful view of the river. It is also where they filmed parts of Kindergarten Cop and the Goonies.

As I said before, we stayed at the KOA that was across from Fort Stevens State Park. This is a really neat place. They have 4 or so parking areas that go out to the ocean and the beaches. One of the neat sites was the Iredale shipwreck. The Peter Iredale was a four-masted steel barque sailing vessel that ran ashore October 25, 1906.

Fort Stevens is an old fort used during World War II. There were not many buildings left standing, but it is pretty cool to drive through.

Our next stop will be Spokane, Washington.

You can view videos at Delbert's Videos on YouTube.
