we took a drive up to Tillamook.
Seems they have a famous cheese factory there :-)
We went for the self-guided tour..
but really went for the samples of cheese!
we took a drive on the 3 Capes Scenic Drive
It wound in and around coastal communities and spectacular views.
When we got to the little town of Netarts, we decided that would be
a great place to have a picnic.
We had brought our cheese & crackers that we bought yesterday.
We had a great view while we were sitting there..
This guy was waiting for us to drop something :-)
Further north we came across this sight..
|Three Arch Rocks|
We drove in and out of fog, and then came to Cape Meares.
There were some beautiful views from there,
..and a terrific little lighthouse.
Unfortunately, it was closed for renovations.
On our way back, we stopped at a place called
Whalen Island County Park.
It had some primitive campgrounds,
and a cool little 1.4 mile nature trail.
There were fantastic views on the estuary side..
The weather cooperated all day,
and we had a wonderful time!
