Day five in the '30 in 30' challenge! Whew! This one about did me in.
And, then, trying to get a good picture of it - not easy!
This little scene is from one of the quaint hilly streets in Astoria, Oregon.
I love cruising around Astoria on a sunny day, admiring all the charming houses perched perilously on hillsides.
Astoria is one of the oldest cities on the West Coast, and a large portion of her first immigrant settlers were from Finland, the land of my forefathers. I get a kick out of seeing 'Suomi Hall' (now a retail store) and other Finnish names around town - makes me feel at home. ;)
