Cape Mears and the Octopus Tree

After spending time on the beach we went to Cape Mears only a mile away. There they have a gorgeous state park featuring the coolest tree in the world, the "Octopus Tree." This tree is more than 60 feet at its base. While you can't actually tell how old it is without counting the rings, some theorize that is has been there since the times of Christ. It has 8+ branches that stem from the base of the tree and is amazing to look at. We had a great time viewing it and talking to Sofia about why it's called the Octopus tree (while she ran around, of course).

This day was jam-packed with fun and relaxation. We can't wait for another beautiful weekend to go and explore!!!
