August 2 – Cheese, Gromit?
Our forest service campsite last night was little more than a pullout alongside the highway, but the creek was fabulous, and since we’d grabbed dinner at one of our Pacific Northwest favorites, I didn’t have to cook dinner (or cleanup). The beds were already set up, so all that remained was to play in the creek with the girls, journal with the girls and otherwise enjoy the evening.
Today we met Grandma Lynn and Grandpa Doug in Tillamook, OR where we fed the ponies at Blue Heron French Cheese Company, a glorified cheese store with animals for kids to pet, then toured the Tillamook Creamery. The packing half of the building was closed for the weekend, but cheese is always in production, and there were interactive displays, videos about production and views of it all in action all while eating our own scoops of ice cream.
On to Washington…
