We left Seaside this morning and stopped at Ecola State Park, just north of Cannon Beach. It was a typical hazy Oregon coast morning and I got hits nice view of the rocks from Chapman Point.
We began our day with a sensational massage at the SurfSand spa then drove south on Highway 101 taking in the many superb coastal vistas. By mid-day we were in Tillamook so we just had to have lunch at the Tillamook Creamery Cheese Factory. Where else is there a menu with half a dozen different grilled cheese sandwiches? Following lunch and a tour of the factory there was the inevitable dessert of Tillamook ice cream. Back in Cannon Beach, we visited a few galleries then settled in for the evening with room service dinner and Monday Night Football.
Following an unhurried drive from North Bend we arrived at Cannon Beach just about at sunset. We were surprised to have any light at all as the afternoon had been replete with rain showers, hail, wind, and even a bit of lightning. But as I stepped onto the balcony of our comfy room the views to the west were stunning in the fading evening light.
