January Heat!?

Yesterday we hit 61*. It was so beautiful & sunny out. I opened all the windows in the house to let out the stagnant air & welcomed in the fresh winter air.

On the news last night, the weatherman predicted the Oregon Coast would hit 72* on Sunday. On the news this morning, another weatherman said the same thing. We believed him, & took the chance and headed south to Tillamook to soak in the sunshine & heat!

This was foggy Camas when we left this morning.
We stopped in Netarts to pick up two dozen fresh oysters, then to Tillamook to feast on grilled cheese sandwiches at the Tillamook Cheese Factory. YUM!

After lunch, we headed south to Pacific City and the temperature outside at 12:30 p.m. was 70*!!! NO JOKE!
I brought sweaters & jackets with me to the coast, because 9 times out of 10, even in the heat of summer, the coast is windy & cold. Not today! There wasn't a lick of wind at all & it was a balmy 70*!  ☼

We decided to hike this hill, along with everyone else.

Here we go!

Halfway up the hill. ☼!!!!

We may not have made it to the we noticed a brewery at the half way mark (no signage facing the beach!!)  & headed back down.

Proud of ourselves for making it halfway, we treated ourselves to an IPA each. I got the Silverlight IPA & Omid got the SeaHops IPA. Both were yummy!

5 minutes outside of Pacific City...and we were back to fog.

So thankful that we were able to get a little taste of spring in January!!! ☼
