When in Tillamook, tour the Cheese Factory. Great cheese, fudge, and ice cream tastings. Yummmmm. Marionberry ice cream. Marionberry is a cross between a blackberry and a raspberry, grown only in Oregon.
Mushrooms grow everywhere here in Oregon. Even these brilliant red ones with pretty white spots. Turns out (we hear) these red ones are the psychedelic mushrooms that were so popular in the 60’s.
Get to the beach walking thru a rain forest near Pacific City. Sherry and our pet bear Louie like going to the beach.
Crazy trees at Cape Meares in Oregon, like this eight branch tree called the Octopus Tree.
Following UPS drivers on dark rainy nights over twisty mountain roads far above the speed limit certainly is exciting! Sherry just kept the UPS tail lights in close view. Lots of adrenalin for both of us. After we exit the 55 mile canyon, we pull up next to the UPS truck at a red light, give him thumbs up, tell him how much we enjoyed following him. His reply? Hope I didn’t scare you too much! What fun. Several drinks when we got home.
Tillamook is a fun, small town. On this Friday night, Benny and the Bay City Rockers play at the Second Street Market. The town’s doctor Benny teaches guitar lessons for free. He and his students get together once a month at a local spot, and have fun playing. 10 people in the band including harmonica player and drummer. Dancing, singing, and just a great time. Mostly music from our younger days: Beatles, etc. Met Gale at our table, who has been full time rv’ing for 15 years. Fun hearing her stories. We are starting to build a few stories of our own. Thank you for letting us share some of them with you!
