Week at the Beach in Review

We had a wonderful Week at the Beach. We escaped the 95 degree temperatures in Portland and enjoyed cooler temperatures at the beach. We had sun all week until Friday when some clouds rolled in but burned off by mid afternoon.

We enjoyed lots of walks on the beach...
We enjoyed dinner at Mo's our first night at the beach - Clam Chowder and Fish and Chips!

We had a Manzanita Mud Dog - I think the glow in the dark pickle relish is amazing. Amazing to look at it not eat! The boys like to eat it though. The buns and hot dogs are flown in from Chicago. It is the one place I will eat a hot dog!

We ate at our favorite pizza restaurant - Marzanos...

On Wednesday we drove down to Tillamook to hike Cape Lookout. Logan left a couple of hours earlier and rode his bike 28 miles to meet us in Tillamook - what a man!

Cali's friend Kat came down for a couple of days and joined us on the hike. It was a beautiful view from the point of Cape Lookout.Of course we couldn't go through Tillamook without stopping at the Tillamook Cheese Factory. We were starving after our hike so we had a Tillamook Cheeseburger and of course an ice cream cone!

We played lots of cards and games. We finally figured out how to play Ticket to Ride which we got for Christmas - we love it and played it lots!

One day we headed over to Hug Point. It's a great beach to go to when it's windy in Manzanita Beach. We played Bongo ball, read, walked around the point and just layed in the sun!We enjoyed lots of beautiful sunsets...
The girls even practiced their ballet positions at sunset...
We went into Cannon Beach and went to their Farmer's Market, checked out Haystack Rock...
and of course stopped by Bruce's Candy Kitchen to pick out some salt water taffy and my favorite - White chocolate covered gummie bears!
Our neighbors the Osborne's and Adams joined us later in the week and we had lots of fun bonfires on the beach roasting hot dogs and making s'mores.

We had a little bit of Beaver Fever going on too....

It was fun having the neighbor kids there and they had a great time playing on the beach.
We also checked ot the Manzanita Farmer's Market on Friday night.

Saturday we enjoyed Fourth of July Activities - see post here for more
Another wonderful Week at the Beach!
