  • Today we started off by saying good-bye to everyone. It was very hard to say good-bye to everyone after so much fun. But we knew we had to be on our way and everyone but 4 campers were leaving so it would have been much good even if we did stay.
  • We went to the Lewis and Clark Fort Clatsop where Lewis and Clark spent the winter. We first watched a presentation on Pomp, the Indian interpreter, Sacagawea's, child. He was in the four things that helped settle the west. 1) Lewis and Clark exploration 2) Mexican-U.S.A. war 3) The fur traders 4) The California gold rush. I thought it was so cool that one man did all that.
  • We drove around Astoria.  We also drove a steep hill up to the column that was way above the rest of the city so we could see all of the city and the ocean. Unfortunately, the column was closed for reconstruction. There was a nice trail, though, through the woods. We didn’t go the whole trail, but the part we went through was nice. 
  • It was time to find a campground before we knew it. The closest one was the Fort Stevens State Park, where 4 of our Lazy Daze friends were. We had lots of fun talking until it got really cold and we all went inside.
