ASTORIA and THE GOONIES HOUSE

We drove up the coast to Astoria-a very cute town on a hill by the Columbia River. We ate seafood and then went to a brewery for more seafood.  The brewery was built by the pier where sea lions hang out so they built a window that you can view the sea lions through. … Read the rest

TILLAMOOK

Tillamook is a seriously beautiful place. When we drove in, it was misty, mysterious and nearing sunset.  We spent the night at a farm and then went to the Tillamook Cheese Factory the next day.  Wow…there were a lot of people there. You can view the factory workers cutting the cheese (ha ha) on the factory floor.… Read the rest

PORTLAND RV EXPO

So guess what we had for breakfast? It started raining that morning and I – as a girl from LA- was freezing all day in this wet 50 degree weather.… Read the rest

PORTLANDIA DAY 1

The first day we got here, it was a beautiful fall day- sunny and breezy and we were like…we could  live here. We went to the Saturday Market, got coffee and browsed books at Powells.  Then we went to the Maker Fair where I played with bees, learned to make a fire with sticks and got our faces scanned in 3D. … Read the rest
