cape foulweather

My grandparents were in town this weekend and had a hankering to go to the coast. (Referring to anywhere along the western edge of Oregon as "the coast" is an old-style Portland thing. I almost always say "the beach" but that's because despite being born here, I grew up in Florida.) Anyway - this is an old building that used to be a lookout/observatory and is now a gift shop with lots of windows. The view when it is sunny: divine. The name of the cape (Cape Foulweather) tells the observant to enjoy the sun when they can. 

THE IRRESISTIBLE SIGN! Seriously. A fortune teller, a penny smasher AND the world's largest insect? Try to keep me away! I haven't actually seen the world's largest insect yet - I must be subconsciously saving it so the sign can remain thrilling and mysterious. I've seen the fortune teller (pirate automaton), but I haven't given him a dollar yet. What if he tells me where the insect is and leaves me with no gift shop treasures to anticipate? 

The view from the side. So lovely - doesn't that coastline look kind of piratey?
