DAY 44 - WARRENTON, OREGON
JUNE 26 , 2014
Today was another early to rise. We had a bus waiting for us at 8:45, to take us on the Astoria/Seaside tour.
We were first met by a ranger who gave us information about what we were going to see at the Fort. We then begin with a movie about the life of the Lewis and Clark group, and ended with us walking up to Fort Clatsop.
|Our guide did a great job of giving us information on the Fort|
|Bob, Sacagawea can't hear you!|
|Phil, we do have other seats in the theater|

After spending much time at the Fort, we boarded the bus and headed to the Columbia River Maritime Museum.
This 44,200-square-foot Columbia River Maritime Museum brings to life the rich maritime heritage of the entire Columbia River region. Exhibit galleries in the internationally acclaimed museum include fur trade and exploration; navigation and marine safety; fishing, whaling and canneries; sailing vessels; steamboats on the Columbia River; and naval history.

|Our guide showed us around the museum|
|The Columbia river was named after this ship|
Among many things In the museum, there was a section dedicated to the US Coast Guard. The mouth of the Columbia is extremely dangerous because of the sand bar at the bottom of the river, with the tide coming in and the Columbia River going out. This area is one of the main areas for training US Coast Guard and Pilot Captains.

With full tummies we boarded the bus again, and headed to the Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center at Cape Disappointment. We watch a movie about Lewis & Clark landing here but because of the weather the Corps of Discovery chose to go back to the Oregon side of the river to settle down for the winter. We wandered through the museum and viewed the light house before leaving to go back to the RV Park.
