Astoria murals

Today we go further north — from Portland to Astoria in Oregon. I found these murals in the seaside town of Astoria in (northwestern) Oregon. Astoria, which lies at the intersection of the Pacific Ocean and the Columbia river has many stories to tell: of Native Americans, shipwrecks and trade. Now lets have a close look at these Astoria murals:

      The Columbia River estuary is said to have been rough on many a ship that came in from the Pacific Ocean. At some point, it was even called Graveyard of the Pacific.

      Murals also seem to talk history, don't they? Now if only they had longer lives.

    One more reason to be there. Beautiful artwork. There is one beautiful mural and artwork place in Miami, can't recall the name. It's amazing, expensive but amazing.
