From Aberdeen to Astoria takes time about 1.45 hours driving along highway 101. Will pass Willapa (Willapa is a place for oyster) shoal water from the Pacific ocean. Few boat will cross to Willapa Bar because of shoal water. It became very rough even on a normal day without storm.
Rough Sea in the afternoon at the entrance of Willapa Bay
we saw lots of surfers looking but no one seemed keen on what was being offered
This is the main reason I wanna come to Astoria. To check on the light house and watch the Columbia River Bar. Why the time we were here at the bar was quite nice and if so we should take the boat here. Later on weather change again. The weather can be change so quick here and it can be rough as in Willapa Bay. We watch the pilot boat help big ship to cross the bar safely.
Keep in touch,
