Today began our first full day of exploration. The weather started cloudy but morphed into a warm, spring-like sunny day. Our stops included the historical Fort Stevens, a walk on the sandy beach to the wreck of the Peter Iredale, an investigation of the wonders held in the Columbia River Maritime Museum, a short visit to view the barking sea lions on the pier, and a stroll through the woods at Fort Clatsop. It was a diverse and interesting day, all with the prevailing threat of sunburn.
