On Sunday we travelled from Tillamook, to Seaside, on to Astoria, and finally back to my parent's house. Hank had an absolute blast at the beach. Considering the fact that the water was somewhere near negative 30 degrees, it was surprising that Hank was so adventurous. He loved splashing in the tide and dancing on the sand. Aaron had to hold him back from charging the waves because he was enjoying the water so much. Later, we visited the sad little aquarium in Seaside. One of the poor seals was missing an eye and the feature-attraction octopus stuck to the wall of the cage like a pile of goo. On a positive note, we treated ourselves to salt water taffy and stopped in Astoria to visit the lighthouse.
