Ah....I feel so relaxed and recharged now!
We drove down to Astoria and Seaside today, and just got away from it all for a few hours.
Saw the blue skies, the ocean, smelled the fresh air, walked on the sand...
Used a sepia filter on this one. Here's the information about this building:
The big red building out in the river was a net drying and mending shed or net loft. Natural fiber nets, which often were made in the fishermen’s homes during the winters, needed to be dried between uses. Fishermen could navigate their boats right up under the building where a hoist would lift the nets to dry. The building was used in the movie “Free Willy II.” A local artist and art professor has purchased the building and is renovating it to be artist studios and small shops.
