Oregon Coast

We have finally made it to the Oregon Coast; yes, it's beautiful.  You can certainly believe there won't be any bikinis on that beach though!  It's barely 60F (15 or 16C) and there is a nice wind blowing. 

We found a park near Lincoln City - it's another PA (PassportAmerica) park so the cost is very reasonable.  Sometimes such parks are not really nice but this one, though crowded, is pretty nice.  No dog run but it works for us.  It's Coyote Rock RV Resort & Marina - they have a big sign talking about the biggest fish they've had taken this year.  The kind of place where it's really quiet at 21:00 but you start hearing people out and about at 05:00.

Yesterday we did a loop up to Tillamook and back.  Tillamook has a cooperative that has been making cheese and other milk products for many years.  We visited the factory and must admit it was pretty awful.  There were zillions of kids; crazed parents and angry drivers in the parking lot.  Not much to see either; just some bored people cutting and packaging cheese into bricks.  Of course it would be a great place to buy an ice cream cone; if you didn't have to stand in line for 10 minutes!  I'm way too old for that shit.

Going to go down south today.  Hoping for more good views and maybe a walk on the beach.  Hope you are having a good one.

We hit the same factory last summer. Didn't get any ice cream either: same reason.

Tilamook does however, make good cheese. we always stock up but it is actually cheaper in the grocery stores than it is at the factory.

I love Oregon. We are going to have to spend more time there.
