The Tillamook Cheese Factory was interesting and tasty. We picked up a few different kinds that hopefully will make it till Christmas to be put out for guests, and I don't mean that it might go bad! We were disappointed that they don't ship cheese. We thought a few gift baskets sent to family and friends would make excellent Christmas gifts but no such luck. For the first time we feel like it is fall. It is drizzling rain and very foggy. We stopped at Cannon Beach to see Haystack rock but it was so foggy we didn't get a good view. We didn't manage to photograph the rest of our recommended spots either as you could not see further than the car in front of us. Drove through many picturesque towns. We stopped at another Costco to try and find that elusive Kirkland Scotch but again no luck, sorry Wayne. They only sell wine in the Costco's in Oregon.
Crossing the bridge in Astoria, we were reminded of the cruise we took with the Hussen Family and our Family a couple of years ago when we celebrated Phil's birthday and Phil became the Oosterdamm Super Star. Fun times. Me thinks it is time to plan another family cruise. Any one want to join us?
We are in Washington now at a campground in Long Beach, again right on the ocean. We are looking at a 9 mile long beach. We were wishing it wasn't raining as we were itching to get out there and walk. We did for a bit till we got too cold and it became Happy Hour.
It is hard to believe that our Road Trip 2010 is quickly coming to an end. We are planning on arriving home on Tuesday November 16. It will be sad not to be on the road anymore but it will be good to 'ketchup' with family and friends and be able to sit down and have face to face conversations. It's been great to be away but it will be great to be home again.
Hugs to all,
