Our first day on the Oregon coast it was pretty wet with messy waves, so instead of surfing and beach/dune frolicking we opted to drive a little north of Pacific City to check out some of the other North Oregon beach towns.  Super cozy drive and the more north we went the less wet it was!  We checked out Manzanita which offered a huge beach with epic coastal cliff views, and then Rockaway Beach which had a sweet old-school main street along the water.  We drove by the birth place of the corn-dog there!  The restaurant was closed on weekdays but there was a sweet mechanical corn-dog which necessitated a photo haha.  Next time, definitely sampling am original Pronto Pup corn-dog though.  I love old places like that with some history.  Anyway, instead of tasting the town’s local cuisine we made some delicious sandwiches by the sea and had a picnic.  Even the local fauna agreed they were tasty.  Gotta say, Rockaway Beach has massive squirrels.  They would carefully scurry up to eat some bread while watching out for seagulls looming in the background to wait their turn…the exotic animal kingdom is a competitive place.  All in all it was sweet to check out some of towns north of Pacific City.  On the way back we stopped at the Tillamook Cheese Factory to taste some curds and learn about cows (pro tip: doe eyes=creamiest milk).  A must if you’re driving through haha, full on tourist mode but so fun.  All of the towns were sweet to drive through and visit, but my favorite is still Pacific City.  The beach-front zone is a little away from the main part of town and is the perfect little non-tropical vacation nook with only a few shops (surf, grocery, coffee and a restaurant/brewery…what else do you need?).  Once again, the best chilly weather travel uniform is jeans, a t-shirt, a down jacket (love this one!), and a toque if your head gets cold.  Have a rad Tuesday babeskillets, Tita xx
