Thursday: (10/20) We stopped in Astoria and walked the downtown area.
Lou got a good recommendation for some fish and chips from a fellow pedestrian. we had lunch at the Columbia Fish And Chips, A boat converted to a street vendor cart. Excellent tuna fish and chips which we shared. Of course we stopped at a couple of thrift stores before leaving town. On the way out of town we stopped at Fred Meyer's for groceries, Costco for a couple of other things and then were on the road again.
We stopped for the night at Nehalem Bay State Park. Water and electric sites are just $20. Oregon State Parks are so nice. The weather has changed back to light rain and drizzle. Dinner was shepherds pie with a green salad.
Note: I uploaded some pictures for the past week. These posts were updated: Salt Creek, Hoh River, Kalaloch Beach, Grayland Beach, Cape Disappointment
Friday: (10/21) This park has some very nice clean showers which, unlike most state campgrounds, are included in the park fee. We took advantage of the showers for an other than "Navy shower" shower. Lou baked up some of the sausage which we got at Costco yesterday. We also got a bag of day old apple fritters yesterday at a Dutch bakery in downtown Astoria. Breakfast was sausage and apple fritters warmed in the microwave. Just like fresh baked. It's overcast and dripping this morning.
We stopped in Tillamook and visited the creamery. We like to watch the cheese making even though they are a bit to mechanized than we prefer. We sampled a lot of cheese, bought too much cheese and had some of their ice cream. Above I got to sit behind the wheel of the VW bus above. Reminds me of the old days in our van.
We visited a thrift store and Fred Meyer's where Lou got a haircut. Then we were off South on Highway 101 to Highway 6. We stopped in Hillsboro at the Washingotn County Fairgrounds where we'll be staying the weekend.
