three capes drive

The second day of our Oregon vacation, we drove out to see the ocean - through the sunny coast range and Tillamook with all its cows and came to the Three Capes Scenic Loop. We tried to do this drive a year ago, but the road was closed so we only saw one of the capes. This time, all three were open! The drive was gorgeous and freshly paved (except for a few huge potholes which Matt expertly avoided) - most of it was right along the coast, looking over small beachside towns. We stopped at Cape Meares and then Cape Lookout, which we instantly decided needs to be a future camping trip. The last one, Cape Kiwanda, was where we ended our day - with fish fresh from the ocean, beer brewed on the spot, and sand beneath our feet!
