A nice train ride on the coast

Cedar Creek Hatchery
Hebo, OR

What a beautiful day..a perfect day for some sightseeing!

Mom & Dad picked us up this morning, and we took a drive north.
We ambled up through Tillamook, and just north of Tillamook Bay,
is the small town of Garibaldi.
It even has a 'G' up on the mountain..

One of the main attractions is the

For $17 each (senior discount!) we had a nice 1 hour roundtrip ride along the coast.
The train is a steam locomotive, and travels from Garibaldi to Rockaway Beach.
There are closed cars to ride in, but also some open cars too.
Since it was such a nice day, we decided to sit in the open car.

The scenery was spectacular!

When we got to Rockaway Beach, we found a great little place to eat..

We had great sandwiches..

and met Grumpy :-)

We had a great time..the day was perfect, the company even better :-)


  1. You make me smile everytime I read a new post of yours because you bring back wonderful memories in my life. There was a little café on at the Garibaldi Marina that had the best clam Chowder. And also in Rockaway, we use to frequent a restaurant on Sundays after church that had wonderful Chicken dinners.

  2. I couldn't wait to get to that cafe in the Marina…I could alread taste the food from what I had read about it. It was closed. :( Loved my time in Garibaldi, Loved the dock that goes out into the bay. Thanks for writing and bringing back great memories.

  3. Beautiful pictures from your train ride. Sounds like a perfect day with people you love. That's what memories are made of.

  4. We did that train ride a couple of years ago with our granddaughters. It was a fantastic time, we still talk about it.

    I couldn't take pictures fast enough, so much to see. :c)

  5. Will have to add this train ride to our list. Thanks for sharing!

  6. I love train rides and the Oregon Coast, can't imagin a better combination.
