Cape Kiwanda

Cape Kiwanda had a little bit of everything.

Cliffs and Surfers


Beach parking

And kayaks!

As it turns out, on a lovely Saturday afternoon, mostly what Cape Kiwanda has is crowds of people. So, we didn’t really get to hang around very long. It did look lovely, and some of the restaurant/shop options are worth going back for another visit. Perhaps actually finding a place to park that doesn’t involve me hopping out to grab some photos while Angela parks for a minute to run in the convenience store would be an option the next time!

Sea Mist At Cape Lookout

Cape Lookout was one of our stops while spending a weekend in the Tillamook area recently. It’s an interesting bit of topography, with the mountain cliffs and forest running right up to the beach sands along the Pacific. This particular day, while the sun was shining, the ocean had kicked up enough mist to make it appear foggy, and the trees just beyond the beach made for a shady, cool area perfect for hiking.

Hiking in the Forest

Like I said, a little bit of everything right there within a short walk of the parking area, or a cabin if you were spending the night!
