14 Monroe Visits Astoria: Part 2

video
I took a trip on a train and I thought about you.
I passed a shadowy lane and I thought about you.
Two or three cars parked under the stars a winding stream.
Moon shining down on some little town
And with each beam the same old dream.
And every stop that we made I thought about you.
And when I pulled down the shade then I really felt blue.
I peaked through the crack and looked at the track,
The one going back to you and what did I do?
I thought about you.
There were two or three cars parked under the stars...
a windin' stream.
Moon shining down on some little town
And with each beam the same old dream.
And then I peaked through the crack and I looked at that track,
The one going back to you, and what did I do...
I thought about you.

We thought about Nancy when we saw the "Fancy Nancy" book in the window. Astoria still has regular pharmacies, shoe stores, hardware stores and Italian bakeries. It has the old fashioned storefronts that have a cut out that sort of beckon you in. The pizza place recommended in the video, Polito's, was excellent.
