From Mt. St. Helen’s to Tillamook, OR is 125 miles of gorgeous scenery. The ocean vistas are beautiful. We stayed at Big Spruce RV Park at Netarts Bay about 6 miles from Tillamook. It’s an old fish camp with rather tight spots. The people here are crabbers and clam diggers. We had lunch at the Sea Shack on the bay and checked out the Fred Myers grocery and everything else store. Not cheap. The next day was Thursday, and while we waited for the fog to clear and the sun to come out and warm things up, we toured the Air Museum at Tillamook’s old Naval Air Station. They housed eight blimps in there during the war. The building was made completely of lumber. Actually, there were two, but one burned down in 1962. This one is owned by one man and all the planes in it. He flies all of them and will take passengers for a ride. He’s 74.
We had lunch at Schnooner’s, a very nice restaurant on Netart’s Bay across from the rv park. Then we went to the Cape Meares lighthouse which is only 38 feet high. There is also a Sitka spruce that is called The Octopus Tree. It’s supposedly in Ripley’s Believe It or Not.
The rest of the pictures are of the coast and a wind surfer who was having a blast. It’s too cold and windy here for us.
