Pacific City beach by Pelican Brewery.
One of the few beaches where cars are allowed.
Lots of people in the water on paddleboards wearing neoprene. It's cold in the ocean. This is not the beach where you might see bikini's in Oregon (Short Sands).
In the valley it was almost 100 degrees. Here, it edged past 80. Much nicer.
The big vertical hill. If you make it to the top, you can windmill down.
My sis and mom & dad.
You can easily see the Cape Meares lighthouse. It's less than a quarter-mile walk from the parking area. Too much for my dad and slightly steep coming back.
South again. Slight mist burning off. Gorgeous day at the beach.
And look what I found. Do you recall me finding the watercolor below at a garage sale earlier this summer? Look at that headland above and tell me it's not the same one.
Just painted from the northside, instead of south - where I was walking.
Looks like the artist (unknown) threw a lighthouse on top for interest. Not quite the Cape Meares lighthouse though.
I tried to edit the photo to make it easier for you to see.
We finished off our day with lunch at the Tillamook Cheese factory.
The Cheddar Baby Loaf Van.
