Oregon Coast

Chris and I rarely have a day off together, so we made the most of this holiday weekend and the random Tuesday that neither of us had to work (Chris actually went in for a few hours in the morning, but I was asleep so it didn't count), and went to the coast.

We headed West on OR-6 towards Tillamook and visited the Tillamook Cheese Factory.

We waited in a ridiculous line for an ice cream cone - Chris got Grandma's Cake Batter in a waffle cone and I got Peaches n' Cream in a sugar cone - and headed out on the self guided tour. We saw the packaging of the cheese and ... well that was about it. We tasted some cheese samples, bought some small blocks of their speciality blends along with some Squeeky Cheese curds (which were fab), and headed out. Overall I give it 3 stars. The whole thing could easily be done in a half hour if you didn't wait in line for ice cream, but really, what's the point in going if you don't get ice cream?

About 6 miles up the road was Oceanside, Oregon and the Three Arch Rocks. We parked the car and walked down to the beach. The temperature was perfect but the winds were a little too strong (should have brought a kite). Chris got some cute maternity pictures of me, and I quickly found out that water logged maternity pants are no fun. I spent the whole time hiking up my jeans as we walked along the water - the elastic waistband was no match for the ocean water. :)

I uploaded a couple photos to the shutterfly account, and will post more tonight, but here's a few to tide you over:







We left home at 1pm and returned about 7pm (and three hours of that was spent enjoying the gorgeous drive). It was a quick trip, but it was a great way to end a 4 day weekend. We can't wait to head back over with a baby and two puppy dogs in tow. Caesar has never been to the Coast before, but I'm sure Apollo will show him how it's done.

  2. Phòng khách tiên tiến và đẳng cấp sở hữu kết cấu phong phú tương phản màu sắc. Sự ấm áp toát lên là do sự kết hợp màu sắc và nội thất. Các bề ngoài dưới đây sẽ cho bạn 1 trải nghiệm về sự tiện nghi tiên tiến tới ngất ngây. Mẫu mã nội thất phòng khách mang sự sen kẽ mờ và bóng của ghế sofa và tường tạo phải một thời trang tinh tế. Gối tròn, đèn hình cầu và rèm cửa tạo buộc phải 1 phương pháp nhìn tổng thể đơn thuần nhưng đẳng cấp. Sofa thấp và bàn phẳng trên nền màu trung tính, vị trí ko đối xứng làm diện tích cảm thấy cởi mở và ít cứng nói hơn.

  6. The laws of nature are just as they treat every specie (and not only man) with equality. In a jungle, every specie gets its due share of food, air and water which enable them to live a dignified life without being dependent on any other creation. Nature makes no distinction between one specie, and the other as all species are the children of the same God. www.lawinformation.us
