Beach Day

We have quite a few definitions for the word "adventure" around here, so for clarity, in the following post it will be defined as "we would never have guessed yesterday that we would be here today."

Last Sunday night, we looked at our weather forecast for Monday, and realized that the high was going to be 33. We also noticed that at the coast, the high was 44 and sunny. We decided it would be a fantastic day for a beach adventure. So we left early in the morning and drove out to Tillamook, which is only an hour from us these days, and discovered that it was in fact a beautiful day. We started out by visiting the Cheese Factories.

The Blue Heron Cheese Factory has a petting zoo... so here is Cam with an Emu 

The Tillamook Cheese Factory was also pretty cool

 And both had cheese samples which makes for a great morning.

From there, we hit up as many tourist spots and beaches as looked interesting between Tillamook and Seaside (about 50 miles). We saw surfers and sea lions, explored caves, found some anemones in a tide pool, and had a kind police officer let us know our break lights were out. All on the most beautiful day we've seen at the oregon coast... ever.
