I'm new here, but I've been hanging out for about a month. This forum was very helpful while planning our first trip to the Oregon Coast last month. We stayed in a yurt at Nehalem Bay. We had so much fun, we're doing it again next week. This time, we're staying at Cape Lookout and bringing my sister and her family. I've lived in Seattle my whole life and have never had the chance to visit. I don't think I've said the word, "Wow", so many times in my life! The scenery was so beautiful I was at a loss for words, (which if you knew me, you would never believe). My dream is to retire in Tillamook. Where else could I have a small farm practically on the beach?!!
I was wondering if anyone knew if we'll be able to dig for clams while we're there, (8/28-9/1). I went online, but it seems there are some different opinions as to when it is. If so, what's the limit and where can we get a license? Also, I know there has been some red tide issues here on the Washington Coast.
I'd also like to know if there's anyone who might know of a good place to go shooting, (at targets, not animals). We asked a sporting good store employee, and he said that shooting was basically permitted anywhere in the forest area which kind of made me nervous. He gave us directions to a logging road, but we don't want to take even the slightest chance of shooting close to a campsite, park, loggers, Bambi, etc.
Since it was our first time there last month, we just kind of touched on everything because there's so much to take in. Is the Tillamook tour worth the time?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
