Day 5: Oregon Coast

Today we got up early and drove to the North end of the Oregon Coast to visit Cannon Beach and Cape Kiwanda in Pacific City. On the way to Cannon Beach, we stopped in Tillamook, Oregon and toured the cheese factory. After lunch at the factory we stopped along the way and took pictures of some haystack rock formations and the rocky beach. Once back on the road, we drove about an hour and a half north to Cannon Beach to walk the beautiful beach and do some shopping in town. Once finished at the beach we headed back south to Pacific City to eat lunch at Pelican Pub & Brewery for my wife's uncle's retirement party. After eating dinner, we hiked the big sand dune and saw amazing views from both sides.  Believe me, though, if you're out of shape, it hurts!  Too bad there isn't a way to just go down them... that part was fun.
