Astoria lunch

A beautiful day for driving out to the mouth of the Columbia River to Astoria. Lunch at the Silver Salmon had the added delight of a glass of crayons and a paper table cover for artistic doodles. I was happy enough to draw the little vase of carnations sitting in front of me.

There used to be a great little French eatery in Portland, Brasserie Montmarte, where artists would draw on the paper table covers. Hung in frames around the restaurant were some beautiful samples of the best doodle art done there. Live jazz some nights. I miss that place. It was supposed to open after a renovation but I haven't heard that it's happened.

Have you?
