Went last weekend and it was bee-yoo-tee-ful. Cold and overcast when we got there turned into a sunny day after about an hour. Got my feet wet, collected rocks, did some knitting, we brought snacks and just sat. It was lovely. Except Elijah kept saying "let's gooooooooo." How can you be bored at the beach? That is not my child. We stopped at a view point and took pictures. Hit Tillamook and got ice cream. Aside from the whiny kid, it was a nice day.
