We left after hubby got off work on Friday and made it as far as Salem. We spent the night in the pet friendly La Quinta hotel. Tink liked the grassy potty spot. ;)

After visiting with the dairy, we went to the Tillamook Cheese Factory. They have a viewing are where you can watch their products being made and packaged. There is also a store to purchase their products, a gift shop, ice cream shop, and a sandwich shop.

From there we headed south along highway 101 taking our time and stopping at view points and places of interest. We had lunch in Depot Bay in a restaurant on the edge of the ocean. It had a fabulous seafood menu. The funny thing is hubby and I aren't seafood people, but while on the coast we had some.

Sunday we woke, took another long stroll on the beach, ate breakfast and headed home. Again at a leisurely pace. Stopping in a small town we'd both been curious about and then meeting friends for lunch in Lebanon. It was a fun trip and now the hard part begins. Packing for our move.
