Fort Stevens is an Oregon State Park at the northernmost part of the state’s coastline, near Astoria. Although my parents have lived in the Pacific Northwest for more than a decade now, I only recently heard about it – specifically its beach with the remains of a shipwreck from 1906.
So, here are a few things I love to photograph: beaches, ships and old, rusty beat-up things.
Since this beach featured all three in one handy package, I decided this was a place I needed to go – and being so near to my parents’ house, I figured it would be a great place for Pumpkin to see the Pacific Ocean for the first time.
However, with our next planned trip to the States being in the winter, I figured the excursion would have to wait a while. This area of coastline is no place for a baby in the winter!
Of course, that all changed with my recent, unplanned visit to the US. So today, my parents and I decided to get away from it all for a few hours and take Baby to the beach for the first time.
Unfortunately, the only camera I have on this trip is the one on my phone – so the pictures aren’t as great as I’d like… but that just means we’ll have to come back some day!
On our way home, we headed to the Pig ‘n’ Pancake in Astoria for dinner. Hubby and I always try to plan our trips to Astoria so we can have a meal there. So, even though he’s not with us this time, I figured we’d better stop there anyway. 🙂
