the free marsh museum and goonies house

The same weekend that we visited the Sou'Wester in Sea View, Washington, we stopped at the Free Marsh Museum to see Jake the Alligator Man in Long Beach, Washington!  Since it was free, why not?  Aside from housing Jake, it also turned out to be a giant tourist trap and oddities museum.  I loved it.

On our way back to Olympia, we stopped for one last adventure in Astoria!  We had dinner at a mediocre Mexican restaurant and drove up the road to the Goonies house!  We've been to Astoria more times than I can count, but we had never been able to find the house.  Luckily, there was a sign at the bottom of their driveway saying that Goonies on foot are welcome!  We walked up and swapped camera pictures with another couple that was checking it out.  Fun!

Goonies never say die!
