Where I stayed
What I did
Next we hit up Auto Zone to replace some burnt out driving lights. Chris showed off his superb auto skills in the parking lot finally turning off the warning message that had been flashing at us the past few days.
I then forced Chris to go up the Astoria Column trying to do something somewhat cultured for the day. I honestly don't even know what the Column was honoring now that I type this - so I failed my own goal on that one
Now that we are total film buff/stalkers/column climbers its time to hit Seaside again. We booked the cheapest place in town and it was a good find.
We strolled the seafront and meandered in and out of the arcade and shops etc. For me it was the mostly indoor version of Santa Cruz. (for Chris - his Southend-on-sea) There was a very cool candy store that we got a few things in but ran out of there before emptying our entire wallets on zots and giant gummy cola bottles. I soon confirmed that I had lost all my amusement game skills so we set off for a drink.
We stopped at Seaside Brewery but after sipping our first pints realized that they did not actually brew any of the beer - they were gearing up for their new bigger brewery and tasting tour, so we had visited a few months too early
Went to the Gray Whale BBQ and enjoyed some tasty sandwiches before setting off on our night out.
Met a nice couple from WA (Danny & Emily) who introduced us to the tasty Fireball. A shot containing one thing...Cinnamon whiskey. yeesh...how I thought this was a good idea I'll never know. (aka...not a good idea, no no no)
Then we played the longest ongoing game of shuffleboard known to man. I don't think anyone was ever declared official winner...but who knows. I was calling it sand sliders at the beginning of the night, so that's how experienced I am at that one.
We zig zagged home and tucked ourselves in.
