But once there you have the Octopus Tree and viewing platforms to see the nesting birds, if you have big enough scope. Sometimes there are sea lions down there too, but not this time.
At Cape Meares there used to be a little village, Bay Ocean, but the sea was starting to reclaim it, so it was evacuated and closed down, buildings removed in the 60' s i believe. I remember Dad taking us out there to see some of the big houses, tennis courts, there was a sleepy little town, with a store and Tavern. On the West side of the Tillamook Bay.
Now u can go and walk forever on the beach as long as the kidneys hold out :) Lots of uninterrupted shelling and wave watching. You can see we had a GREAT day, weatherwise. Could not have been better.
