Cape Meares, The Octopus Tree And The Lighthouse

After we left the beach we drove up to Cape Meares to check out the Octopus Tree.

Just past the Octopus Tree is another view of the coastline and Three Arches Rocks.

Can you imagine owning one of those two homes up on the cliffs?

One more stop at the tree on the way out.

Then we went to visit the lighthouse. The red in the distance is part of the light.

We had to pause for a look up the north side of the coastline.

We walked back to the parking lot along the other path that overlooks the coast to the south

Which allows for another shot of Three Arches Rocks.

Then it was really time to leave... Until we spotted some Great Blue Heron all over in Netarts Bay and Travis stopped so I could take some pictures.

When the one I was stalking finally flew away I scrambled out of the brush and we were finally headed home. What an outstanding day!
