Travels: 63 miles driving around (1426 total miles)
Accommodations: Continued at the Wallace Family home

After granola, showers, and playtime, we headed up to Astoria to church at Coastline Christian Fellowship. Missionaries shared their stories and the pastor, Jason Biel, shared a short but convicting message on living for God. There were lots of young people and the kids had fun going to Sunday school.

After church, we went to brunch at the Pig’n’Pancake with the Wallaces – a breakfast place that you find all over this area. Next the Wallaces gave us a guided tourof the Astoria area: downtown Astoria, a climb to the top of the Astoria Column with Marin on my back {Note: 30 extra pounds} – we threw Balsa wood airplanes off the top – Dave had a great flight. From the column you could see out across Young’s Bay, the Columbia River, and out to Saddle Mountain – green, water, trees! On the way back to Gearhardt, we went to South Jetty at the inlet to the Columbia River – much like South Jetty in Ventura, but a bigger inlet and more powerful ocean (and white sharks!). I went to shopping with Cathy, Camille, and Sean at Fred Meyers – a big everything store in Warrenton. After shopping, we got dinner ready and enjoyed another meal with the Wallaces and some of their friends. After dinner, Camille and I looked through some old pictures which were HILARIOUS to say the least! Got to love those old elementary and middle school pictures! I’m going to have to dig some more out when I get back to Ventura.
