After an incredible weekend of experiencing the FisherPoets Gathering for the first time, I wandered around exploring Astoria in all of its epic rainy glory. Luckily, the town has a rich maritime history and a vast museum to highlight all the nautical history. These labels easily caught my attention as I roamed throughout the cozy history of the region. I highly recommend the Astoria Maritime Museum on your next visit to the area.
