We also went to the Pioneer museum in Tillamook. It was also really neat-there was a room full of weaponry, from Indian arrowheads and spears to Civil War rifles. There was also a re-created Pioneer house, a doll collection, a Victorian style room, and much more--including a LARGE taxidermy display! (My LEAST favorite, and probably Scott's most favorite :) )
Here I am outside the Pioneer Museum--not the best tummy shot, but you can kind of see it. I'm 17 weeks here.
We drove out to the point and saw the Cape Mears Lighthouse and the Octopus tree-- a HUGE Sitka Spruce that looks like an upside-down octopus, shaped by strong coastal winds. It was SO cold and SO windy.
After the beach, we stayed in Portland for 3 nights and saw some of our dear friends. Here are Adam and Scott with their beer samplers at Rock Bottom Brewery. We also had dinner with one of my best friends from college, Angela--she cooked us a DELICIOUS meal and her sister, Jen, and boyfriend (now fiance!) Ben were there. All in all, it was a great trip. Very relaxing and a much needed vacation! We are in Florida right now for a work conference for Scott, so I'll update about that soon--I promise!
