Squeaking Under the Bridge in Astoria

Well, I meant to write about this a long time ago, but got derailed getting ready for the Sunday Market. Hell, my whole life got derailed.

Anyway, back in April it was announced that a collosal ship carrying a monster crane would be coming up the Columbia River to Astoria early in the morning at the lowest possible tide to try to squeak under the bridge on its way to Portland. This sounded like too good an opportunity to miss, so I ran down there to take pictures. Here they are:

About 100 people showed up to see if the ship would make it - it was an incredibly tight fit - and we all gave them a big cheer when they slipped through. It was choreographed beautifully.
