My roommate has also arrived; so the adventure is beginning! I met Marnie Rawles on the Pacific Coast Ride I was on last summer. We should have a great time this summer as well. Slowly but surely the other riders are showing up. We are staying at the Lamplighter Motel, 131 W. Marine Drive, Astoria, OR. I am in Room 103.
The Astoria Column which contains 163 steps to the viewing deck on top.
Tonight, June 2, 2011, 10 of us went to diner at "Drina Daisy Bosnian Restaurant", 915 Commerical Street in downtown Astoria. The food was delicious. It was like being back in Sarajevo...As usual, being the carnivore that I am, I had the spring lamb...it was marvelous! Just take a look at one of the meals that was served...yummy! I didn't have time to take a picture of my meal...I ate it too fast! :-)
Tomorrow the rest of the riders will arrive and final preparations will be made before we start our loop ride to Seaside, Oregon on Saturday, June 4, 2011.
