ABOVE: Bruce Faling piloted the historic Tourist No. 2 ferry along with Jacquelyn Harris and about 15 other passengers during a brief outing on the Columbia River last week. The ferry operated between Astoria and Megler before bridge construction in the mid-1960s. The partially restored ferry is not currently expected to operate on the north shore, but to confine itself to tourist excursions in the vicinity of Astoria.
