A little salt air for the Admiral.

Post by Mark1 » January 15th 2016, 7:59pm

I haven't really had much time to spend with the Admiral. In the final stages of a huge project at work which will have me toiling away through the weekend and likely most of next week. Management is in cover their ass mode until we finish and that means holding their hands and overcoming their oversights. Many of which were pointed out when we started this thing months ago. They are like kids-don't listen to us until we are the only ones that can save their ass. Is it just me or do you swear the guy who writes Dilbert works where you do?
So I need to send the Admiral along to the Doc in Jersey, but I wanted to take a few pics to show where he had been. Can't help the weather, you're lucky if it's not raining sideways this time of year.
This is the Columbia River with one end of Puget Island in the background. See where all the emissions are coming from? That's where I will be hard at work.

The city of Astoria, Oregon. Founded by John Jacob Astor who made some money screwing the trappers and Indians of the area in the early 1800's. He turned that money into a lot more screwing immigrants as a tenement building slumlord in New York City. Oregon is in the foreground and Washington in the background.

Ships anchored off Astoria. May be waiting for the bar pilot to guide them out into the Pacific, or just drinking in town.

The Columbia River Maritime Museum-old boats and whatnot.

The Astor Column commemorates the early history of the area. Lewis and Clark camped near hear at Fort Clatsop before heading back to St. Louis.

Enjoyed my brief time with the Admiral, wish we had time to see more stuff.

When the Admiral's tour is concluded, we should gather the photos together in a single thread. Someone probably mentioned this already, but tough shit if they did.

Great pictures Mark!

Also, no one has mentioned this yet, but we should put all the pictures in one thread once his tour has concluded...

It's kind of late now but I was thinking we should have had a small thumb drive accompany the Admiral on his travels, for that purpose.

Great pictures, Mark! I do miss Oregon...
Btw. I really think we should gather all pictures of the Admiral's adventures in a single album here, if no one has thought about it yet.

Looking forward to the Admiral's visit.
Will try and show him a good time while he is here in Jersey.
Beautiful pictures. Been out that way a few times but not for many years. Stopped in Astoria while on our way from Cannon Beach back up to Seattle area.
If not mistaken, that is here they filmed "The Goonies".

Have other hosts taken pictures?

Did that salt air rust the little guy?



Everyone posted pics. I'm too lazy to go back and find all the posts and copy the pics. The Admiral will be auctioned off along with a beautifully designed map of his travels though. (courtesy of the talented and generous artman)
