..Tillamook continued..the three capes ..

Once we were done at the cheese factory..we were full from our ice cream and cheese sampling…We decided to head south again but this time we took the ‘three capes scenic route’..not a disappointment that is for sure…our first stop was Cape Meares..

next ‘cape stop’ after encountering some ‘road work’..seems to be the theme of the day ..no matter which road we travel …there are those smiling men in their fancy orange vests slowing us down!!

our next spot we found after the sign on the road said..’watch for blowing sand?’..what the heck?.. we thought we were at the Oregon Dunes??..nope just a spot called Sand Lake??..I had taken a picture of the sign but it was impossible to read…
