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..
we hiked up the hill towards the ‘Octopus Tree’
our next stop was the town of Oceanside…we stopped here for a drink and a picnic snack..we carried the chairs down to the beach and we sat for a bit..
the homes on the hillside ..another million dollar view!!
‘Otis’s cousin came to visit and see if we had anything ‘good’ we were willing to share?
after lunch we carried on our way to the next ‘Cape stop’..but first there was a deceleration point once again…
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!!
we left our second ‘cape’ stop and headed out on the road again..climbing up to a beautiful view point. “anderson’s view point”..we feel that these are the pictures of the day!!!
a man who knew no fear!!!
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…
last cape stop..was Cape Kiwanda at Pacific City..trucks on the beach!!..what fun!!!
those are people on the sand hill..sliding down..skiing on sand ???..we headed home after this last stop…back onto Highway 101 and we returned to the hotel after our Mexican dinner…no sunset tonight..just overcast…lots of big waves..we had a great day today!!!…LOVE THE ROAD YOU ARE ON!!..THAT, WE DID!!!
Tomorrow we are heading south..Newport and Depoe Bay are on the agenda!!..stay tuned
