Oct 21, 2008 - Cape Meares Lighthouse and More

Our last stop on the Three Capes Scenic Drive was Cape Meares. We haven't done this complete drive before only the smaller loop from and back to Tillamook. For this route we left Hwy 101 about 8 miles north of Neskowin. The first cape was Cape Kiwanda, the second Cape Lookout and the third was Cape Meare.

From here we got another view of the 3 Arch Rocks. We could see the arch in two of the rocks from this vantage.

The last time Mom visited Cape Meare the lighthouse was under construction, so we felt strongly that we needed to bring her back so she could see this little gem at its best. Unfortunately, we arrived too late and the gift shop was closed. The walk down the long slanting ramp was so hard on me this time. My knees were killing me and walking down a slope is the worst.

Candleman walked to the Octupus Tree (a Spruce) and took a few pictures for us to see.
