On Laura's and my birthday weekend, September 17-18, we (Laura, Bryan, Kara, Justin, Jen, Rod, Ivana, Dave and I) enjoyed a stay and birthday cake at a Long Beach WA cabin. Although the weather was at times blustery, it was a fun weekend and included a side-trip to Astoria, OR just over the border. That bridge over the Columbia River is huge! And one of the interesting things we saw in Astoria was the Astoria Column. Here's Rod and Ivana on the top as we looked up! By the way, together, Laura and I are 120 years old now!
