We got up and had pancakes and bacon for breakfast? Why? Well, our lovely daughter, Ruth, turned 12! Greg had some work to do so we got a bit of a late start out but once we were on the road, we deadheaded to Tillamook, OR to taste some cheese!
We love cheese!
We had lunch, did the tour, and did some shopping. Tillamook was a bit crowded and noisy but it's a required stop. Plus, you can't miss their Vintage White Cheddar -- it's beyond delish!
Greg had more work to do (thank goodness for 3G access!) so we hung out in the parking lot there until he got it done and then headed down to Honeyman State Park. This is a family favorite -- Greg's family visited here eons ago, he and I visited years ago and we were looking forward to sharing it with our kids.
Honeyman is located in the Oregon Dunes area which makes it a really unique area to visit. However, it's changed in the last 20-something years. We hadn't realized that ATVs were allowed on the dunes now. This results in a campground that is crowded and noisy. Add to it that there was something I was horribly allergic to and I don't think we'll be back. Sad, huh?
Still, we had fun climbing the dunes!!!
