Over the weekend Jill and I went down to the beach to hang out. I'd never driven around the town itself so we went off in search of the house and cool bridge in the movie. We found neither but went over the Astoria Bridge and up to the Astoria Column (with its $1 seasonal parking pass.) After having some kickass fish&chips and chowder we browsed a cool bookstore and an art gallery with Halloween themed paintings. I was going to get one but it was pretty spendy. I made up for it by getting The Hobbit for $2.
