This is Cannon Beach, which was adorable (as most of these little towns are)
(P.S. A huge THANK YOU to Darrin and Andrea for lending us their tour books, especially the mile-by-mile guide that was the most awesome for us in our situation with Abby taking her naps in the car! Stop at lookouts, take turns enjoying the view!)
(If you are in the area and looking for a place to stay, we loved the Garibaldi House!)
Tillamook Cheese Factory! (I use that term loosely- it is a self tour, where you walk around as long as you want and look at bulletins and interactive educational videos and murals about cheese and it's history. You don't actually see cheese being made, just big fermenting drums and big blocks of cheese being cut into size. But it's free! And you get cheese at the end! And you get to spend a lot of money on souvenirs and crap too!)
We helped ourselves to 5 scoops. At 10:30 in the morning. It was the right thing to do.
We also brought home some cheese. If you think that you would get it cheaper at the factory, you'd be wrong. But they still had some yummy flavors that we don't get in our part of the country.
More goats! This is the Blue Heron Wine and Cheese Co.
It should be noted that this morning was the time the fog came to the trip (were we driving into it, and it was moving with us? Was the entire coast foggy?) It never cleared up the rest of the 4 days we were on the coast.
J's Fish and Chips in Lincoln City, which is a little dump of a restaurant, but very good.
