oregon coast: day 2

We woke up in our cute little beach house and walked to Rockaway Beach since it was about a block from where we were staying. Joel and I couldn't get the Herman Dune or Ramones songs about the beach out of our heads, ha!

Once Joel heard that the Tillamook Cheese factory was along the way, he was pretty stoked. Turns out, they give free tours and cheese samples! We took advantage of the cheap ice cream and photo ops!

More driving and stopping . . .

And our first lighthouse of the trip at Cape Meares!

Our next stop, and one of my FAVORITES was in Depoe Bay. It's the Whale Watching Capital of the Oregon Coast! Of course it was my favorite. And we even saw a gray whale way out in the distance (you could tell from the spouts of water that would come up!). LOVE IT! They also advertise their town as being the World's Smallest Harbor. We walked around, ate some taffy, and watched the fishermen feed their fish scraps to seals. THE BEST PLACE EVER!

Sunset at the water again . . . this is where the whale was!

We kept going as it got dark and made our way to Newport to for the evening.

Day three soon!
