Oct 21, 2008 - Cape Foulweather

I learned since we've been home from our trip that Yaquina Head was named Cape Foulweather until 1873 when the cape 10 miles up the coast received the name. So in 1778 when Captain James Cook named Cape Foulweather he was naming Yaquina Head. I'm just surmising things here - not really sure.

The only building on Cape Foulweather is a gift shop named Look-out Gift Shop. I think that's just to keep us confused since there is a Cape Look Out further up the coast.
