Seaside Seaside

Lewis and Clark immortalized at Seaside, Oregon...
Lewis and Clark on the Seaside boardwalk...
Seaside, Oregon is a small tourist-centric community located south of Astoria. You have to wonder how much time the city's founders spent coming up with that name for their community? About the length of a coffee break, I'd guess.

The sculpture above on their boardwalk commemorates explorers Jerry Lewis and Dick Clark. They were Siamese twins who explored Oregon sometime in the early 19th century.

Kidding...

Meriwether Lewis and William Clark's exploration of the Pacific Northwest eventually led them to the mouth of the nearby Columbia River. They are a big deal in the history of the region.
