☠️☠️☠️GOONIES NEVER SAY DIE!!! ☠️☠️☠️
7 years later, nearly to the day….we are back in Astoria, OR. I ❤️ this place.
We stopped for pizza & burgers at Geno’s.
I was devastated. But SO glad I had been up to it 7 years before. These are the best pictures we could get.
It was a beautiful day in Astoria. We couldn’t have asked for better weather.
We got gas and did our grocery shopping…and headed out to our KOA.
KOA’s are the Disneyland of Camping. Something for everyone. Including….laundry rooms. Yes! Felt good to get some stuff washed. And…guess what movie was showing for the kids at 6pm?!?!! Yup. The Goonies! And popcorn. All the kids were in heaven….I won’t lie, I loved it, too.
Joe grilled steak (filet) and baked potatoes for dinner. And I got the kids a special treat for dessert…
“Baby…Ruth….” — Sloth
“Geez Mister, you’re even hungrier than I am!” — Chunk
Sunday Morning….I was ready!!!
We headed into Astoria….parked down by the Bowling Alley (Chunk: opening credit scene…pizza & milkshake)
Grace & I went in — and walked over to the window….so fun!
Then….down to the Docks (The GoonDocks)
So many movies filmed in Astoria…
I want this Nintendo game!!!!
After clam chowder for lunch…we stopped at the beach – to see the shipwreck.
It’s past nap time now….The Boov was done. Back to Camp Millions-of-Kids 🤣
A little sand writing before we go…hashtag for the win ❤️👍🏻
….Canon Beach tomorrow 😍😍😍😍
