Find a starfish up on the beach

 While exploring a more secluded beach along the Oregon Coast my boyfriend and I found 2 starfish washed up on the shore. One was covered in rocks and hard to see, while the other one sadly made for a great photo. That wasnt the only thing we found washed ashore that day. We found the heads of several fish, incuding one that looked like an alien. And of course we found all different kind of shells and a few crab legs. It made for a fun advenure to see what we would find next.

See the tallest Sitka Spruce Tree in Oregon

Although not as big and impressive as I thought it would be, it is still a really big tree! I felt so little standing beside it! It felt amazing as well to be standing beside something so ancient. The tree is located near Cape Meares State Scenic Viewpoint. Although it is a short 1/2 mile trail, it can get very muddy so make sure to wear decent footwear.

Drink a milkshake in a 1950s style American diner

 I love classic roadside American diners, I wish more of them where still around! 

For my 29th birthday I visited the Tillamook area on the Oregon Coast. We decided to eat at this cute little 1950's themed diner called Dutch Mill Diner in Tillamook for lunch. It was covered in decor of the 50's and the music they were playing where from the decade as well. They served the classic foods you would find at a place like that burgers/sandwiches/fries/tater tots and of course milkshakes! We ordered a chocolate peanut butter shake and they served us what couldnt fit in the glass in that classic metal tin they use to mix the milkshake. It was the perfect lunch for my birthday =D

See the Octopus Tree on the Oregon Coast

The Octopus Tree is a massive Sitka spruce with branches growing like giant tentacles from its 50-foot base. The tree’s odd shape, according to local historians and Tillamook tribal descendants, comes not from the ravages of wind, as some have said, but from its function as a ceremonial site, shaped to hold cedar canoes and other ritual objects.  In earlier days, Oregon Coast activist Sam Boardman recognized the tree as one of several "Indian Ceremonial Trees" trained over time, a common practice of the Coast tribes. One of the many sacred evergreens on the North Coast, the Octopus Tree was specially venerated, probably serving as the gathering site for important Tillamook tribal rites.  Typical of such specially chosen trees, the branches of this spruce were forced downward toward a horizontal position when they were still flexible, finally extending about 16 feet from the base. When allowed to resume vertical growth, each branch reached skyward to more than 100 feet, creating the distinctive shape. 

The Octopus Tree may be more than 250 years old. Once featured in Ripley’s Believe It or Not, the tree has been described as one of the modern Wonders of the World. Over the years, this curious spruce has also borne the name Monstrosity Tree and Candelabra Tree, for obvious reasons. But it is persistently called the Council Tree, a place of reverence where elders once made decisions and where shamans performed ceremonies. Today the Octopus Tree is not only a historic site, but also a botanical wonder, the kind of tree that prompts tourists to make a sightseeing detour. 

This is a tree worth the visit! I have never seen a tree like it before in my life! For my 29th birthday I took a trip to the Oregon Coast and spent time exploring the sites near Tillamook. The tree is part of the last remaining old growth forest on the Oregon Coast. It is located just a short walk for the cape Meares Lighthouse, making it all more worth the trip to see this marvelous tree!
