Today was supposed to be the last day of sunshine before the fall/winter/spring rains begin. My husband and I used that as an excuse to head to the North Oregon Coast for the day, which is only about an hour from where we live.
We spent time walking along Cannon Beach. Well, some of us ran…
We ate lunch at Bills Tavern & Brewhouse, also in Cannon Beach. We took advantage of the decent weather and ate on the patio, which I might add is dog-friendly.
I ordered the Thursday lunch special: fish tacos made with locally-sourced rockfish. These may have been the best fish tacos I’ve had. Ever. The “Blackberry Beauty” wheat beer I ordered to accompany it was pretty tasty too.
After lunch we headed south for some light hiking at Cape Meares State Scenic Viewpoint. They have four short trails, which probably equal around 2-3 miles if all are walked. We walked 3-1/2 of them.
Before heading home, we stopped by the Tillamook Cheese Factory for a snack.
This mountain huckleberry ice cream cone hit the spot. I was also impressed to see that they make their own waffle cones onsite with old-fashioned waffle irons.
And now, let the rains begin!!!
