Ships on the Columbia River in Astoria

Columbia River enters the ocean in Astoria, a lovely little town located in Oregon, just next to the boarder with Washington.

It must also be pretty deep as there were many large transporter ships cruising on it. We got to Astoria around sundown, which added even more charm to the ships on the river:
