Cape Lookout

Thursday we got back from an amazing four days at the Oregon Coast with our church. As you know by now if you read my blog frequently, I'm not always very good about getting the "people pictures" in, so take everything you see and remember that we were there with a lot of church friends.
This is the view from the beach just steps from our campsite. It really doesn't get much better than this. In the distance is Cape Lookout for which the park is named.
This is the trail leading from the beach up onto the cape.
And the view from that trail back down toward the beach. You can barely see it, but there's another cape in the background, Cape Meares, which we also visited.
Cape Mears boasts two main attractions--a light house and the amazing "Octopus Tree," which looks something octopus.

And how could you go to Tillamook County without visiting the Tillamook Cheese Factory?
At low tide on the beach, you can get to these rock cliffs that are covered in barnacles and other little sea life.
We also hiked to the end of Cape Lookout. This is the view from Cape Lookout towards the south.
Of course, the whole group spent a lot of time just hanging out on the beach, walking, wading, boogie boarding, and playing volleyball, but I didn't have my camera down there for any of it but one volleyball game. :(

Having bonfires on the beach was another definite highlight.
All in all, it was a wonderful trip--maybe the best WPC camp-out I've been on.
