Tillamook

Posted this a little precipitately, so a little out of order - this stop followed our visits to Cannon Beach and Seaside.

Heading south, we stopped at the famous Tillamook Cheese factory:

Where of course they make cheese, and lots of it:

The lights made everything look yellow.
They’re also known for their ice cream:

These vats are unbelievable huge:

And the product was as delicious as expected:

Quilters that we are, this commemorative quilt caught our eye:

I was especially intrigued with the paper-pieced trees at the bottom, very ‘wonky’ but reflective of the trees in the wind in this area.
The trip continues………….Peg

  1. We used to live in N CA and have cousins in Newport - so we often have stopped at the different cheese factories coming and going - and took special trips over to Tillamook.
