Hello! It's Tyler here to tell you about our latest adventures. First, we went to Oregon for a drive down the coast along the Pacific Ocean. The first day we were staying in a town called Cannon Beach, which is famous for Haystack Rock, a huge rock sticking out of the ocean. We decided to go to a beach further south, but it was really foggy when we got there, so we thought we would only be there an hour or so. It ended up clearing up and we stayed all day. After our day at the beach, we started our drive down the Oregon coast. On the way, my mom and dad saw a sign for the Tillamook Cheese Factory, so we stopped in since my brother and I love cheese so much. We bought some cheese, but also had some of their famous ice cream.
The next day, we drove to San Francisco and on the drive down, we stopped at Oregon Dunes State Recreation Area where we went on a trail which runs through the dunes. Stefan and I raced down the dunes a few times.
When we got to San Francisco, we had to get our car washed because it was covered in dead bugs from all our driving. In San Francisco, we stayed with our parent's friends, Rob and Sue, who helped us find our way around. We all went to a baseball game together at AT&T Park, where the San Francisco Giants play. It was a close game, but in the end, the Giants won.
After the game, we crossed the Golden Gate Bridge, which Rob told us is always being painted.
So now we are going to leave the continental United States and head off to Hawaii. Where I'll report for my next blog posting.
