For our last day we headed to the coast again. This time we went to Pacific City, the same place George and Stacie got engaged. We wanted to climb the giant Sand Dune at Cape Kiwanda.
When we arrived there was a truck stuck in the sand on the beach. The idiot had gotten stuck trying to pull in a boat larger than the truck itself just as the tide was coming in. We stood and watched for a few minutes while a cop showed up, and a few people tried to help, and we moved on.
We started climbing the sand dune and quickly learned it was a lot higher than it looked! After getting to the top, the view was well worth it. Rachel ran down but I had to keep the flying sand to a minimum, protecting my camera. On the way down we noticed they’d gotten the truck out but only with the assistance of a full size tow truck (who was smart enough not to pull onto the sand, and used their winch).
We spent a great day at a beautiful place. An absolutely perfect place to end a fantastic vacation.
