Pacific City Birthday Adventures!
Just got back from a couple of nights at Inn at Cape Kiwanda in Pacific City! Our 2 nights at the beach flew by so fast! Me and 'My Wonderful' were celebrating our birthdays. We originally planned to go more out into nature (Canoeing, Camping), but things changed rather quickly when we realized everything seemed booked up everywhere we looked and every camp site was first come first serve. Cape Kiwanda has been a place that we love to retreat to for a relaxing getaway (along with Coast Cabins). I highly recommend it if you ever pass through the area. There is so much to do! Some major perks to the trip is the good surf location for Wayne, and his favorite beer is Pelican Brewery's seasonal Surfer Summers Ale. ; ) We of course grabbed a few bottles while we were there to take home(It is surprisingly semi hard to find in Portland). Upon arrival we were given a free bottle of white wine for our birthday celebration. We watched a few new release movies from the front desk for free, grabbed a pizza to go, Wayne surfed a couple of times, and we got some new birthday gear at the Tanger Outlets in Lincoln City. We also did some hiking out to the point at Cape Kiwanda. We kept pretty busy which explains our lack of down time. On our way back we stopped by the Tillamook Forest Center. It is free which shocked me- I was prepared to pay to get in. We have never stopped there before, and it is actually a good place to go for a day of picnicking and hiking. It appeared to be a good place to swim in the Wilson river also.
