My first view of Cape Kiwanda, I kept imagining that Godzilla was sleeping in the ocean ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Sunset view from the cabin we were staying at. Totally awesome place, you can see and hear the ocean.
Headed out to the beach during low tide hoping to find some clams. No luck with clams but scored on some awesome photo opportunities. The fog, mist and sunrise made for some beautiful photos. I often found myself starring out into the fog feeling as if I was on another planet.
Chester’s Thriftway was the spot! Once I found out they had beef sticks I had to stop by a couple times to stock up!
I don’t even remember how many times we stopped at Tillamook to get their Ice Cream. I don’t have a sweet tooth but I too fell victim to their Ice Cream. Oregon Hazelnut & Salted Caramel was the flavor I kept getting and it was gooooooood! If you ever stop by, do yourself a favor and get a kids scoop size. The regular one scoop they give you is huge! But of course I couldn’t resist and always got 1 scoop on a waffle cone, damn now I want one!
Their facility was real nice and the photographs they had hanging all over reminded me of “Strobist” photography. As for cheese my favorites were the “Coby” and the Pepper Jack.
Anderson’s viewpoint was pretty amazing, showed up late in the day so had the whole view to myself.
Low tide clamming at “Pier’s End” in Garibaldi. Good times with the family but make sure to head back in before the tide rises, we got the clue and head back in when the locals decided to call it a day. Cool vibes all around and a few of the locals even took the time to give us some tips.
Stopped by Kelly’s Marina for some lunch. Nothing like eating fresh seafood right out of the water while enjoying some awesome Oregon brews. We enjoyed it so much we came back a few days later to do it all over again.
Neskowin beach home of “Proposal Rock” and the “Ghost Forest.” When I walked out onto the beach and laid eyes on “Proposal Rock” I thought… “oh what the!” I was pretty surprised to see what I saw. Before coming out here, I did no research on what I would be seeing so that I’d be surprised at what I would be seeing and surprised I was!
From afar walking towards the “Ghost Forrest” it looked as if there were people standing on the beach. Once I finally got to the end I still didn’t know what I was looking at but it sure did look amazing. Basically a photographers dream!
Standing here looking at the view I almost thought I was in Hawaii.
Visiting the Oregon Coast was definitely an awesome experience. I can see myself coming back to spend more time taking landscape photos and visiting every Nike Outlet in town!
