Re-hearse-ed

A re-purposed hearse...

We spent a day and night near the city of Astoria in Oregon. Astoria is located in the northwest corner of Oregon at the mouth of the Columbia River.

We spent a morning exploring the beach at the mouth of the river. We came across this re-purposed hearse in the parking lot. Inside and out it was retro-fitted to carry the owner's fishing gear. It was an older vehicle, but in immaculate condition. No surprise perhaps... hearses aren't normally driven very fast or very far.


Astoria itself has a picturesque waterfront that features this old time trolley. It runs from one end of town to the other. What's clever is that at the far end, the seats easily convert to face the opposite direction simply by swinging the back of the seat up and over to the facing bench. In this way the trolley doesn't have to do a turn around... it simply goes in reverse.
