Webb County Park
As we round up our week at Webb County Park, we are headed to Tillamook today to go to, where else, The Tillamook Cheese Factory. It's been years since we've been here and it's been completely remodeled. I've heard it's now a self guided tour. First we'll stop to do a short hike to Munson Creek Falls.
Tillamook Air Museum. We didn't have time to visit it but here is some info if you're interested. It is open M-Sun 10-5, $10 admission or $9/Senior 65+, $8 Active or Retired Military. What I found interesting is that they have a nearby RV Park. It is only 2 miles off 101 and is $15 a night, dry camping. 30x50 graveled pads. There are a couple water spigots but no dump or other facilities. There is a 2 week maximum stay allowed. So if you are passing through and can't find a spot, this just may work for you.
Tillamook Cheese Factory, we could see right off how different it was. There is plenty of parking, even for RVs, but everyone seemed to want to circle around to find the closest when there were plenty if you walked just a little.
There was a cute display for the little ones. This little girl was "feeding" one of the calves in this display.
Looking down on the first floor you can see the Gift Shop where you could purchase your favorite cheeses and other related goods.
There were about six cheeses to sample. Yummy! We also went outside and stood in another very long line. This time for ice cream. Steve's favorite is the Huckleberry but this time he chose the small batch Canadian Maple Whiskey. He gave it a 2 Thumbs Up. I wasn't going to get any, but chose a Mocha Almond Fudge which was also very good. I didn't get any pictures of the counters, but go to the outside counter it is faster. There are also many tables, grass and it's doggy friendly.
Along this area of 101 there are several pull-outs with outstanding views.
Long, long way down.
Then we stopped at a favorite of mine. The very cute town of Wheeler. No we are not related but always fun to stop here. Since it's on the coast so do a lot of other people. I get pictures of the town signs from friends and family from time to time.
I nominate myself as Honorary Mayor of Wheeler.
It does have an interesting history.
Back deck off the Marina. A popular place to get a drink and watch the time roll in and out.
We went into the Marina for a drink since I own the place. Not, but still fun to do.
There he goes!
So many pretty spots to take pictures.
The last thing on our list for the day was to visit Cape Meares Lighthouse.
The lighthouse is only 38 feet tall making it Oregon's shortest, but sits up on a 217ft bluff.
We watched another beautiful sunset and then enjoyed Saturn next to the crescent moon.
Good Night. It's been a great week. We will be heading up to the far NW corner of Oregon next.
