The final day of the Hudson vacation ended up being the best! We decided to drive about two hours west towards Tillamook. On the way we stopped by the Tillamook Forest Center:
Honest to goodness, the Tillamook National Forest makes the rest of Oregon look like it is underachieving. I have never seen such beauty in all my life!
We also stopped by the Tillamook Cheese Factory:
Big disappointment, the factory was mostly closed but packed with visitors. We didn't stay long but we plan to go back on a non-holiday.
Finally we decided to eat lunch at the beach:
View from restaurant in Oceanside, Oregon
The Oregon beaches are so different from California
Uncle Matt decided to walk out into the ocean...
and Liam tried to follow.
Mom and Dad joined in too...
but not Auntie Kristi!
We thought for sure those were the rocks from Goonies, but we were wrong. They are further north in Astoria, Oregon. Maybe we can go on the next trip. Thanks Hudsons for a great visit!!
