While we were camped on the hill top at the Pacific City Thousand Trails we were able to see some breathtaking sunsets. This campground is on the rugged Oregon coast with views of coastal pines and rock formations protruding for the the salty water.
There are so many bunnies around the campground. They seem to be domestic rabbits that have been introduced into the wild. We made some great pool friends while we were at the heated indoor pool.
We visited the Tillamook Cheese Factory. We took a self guided tour and learned how Tillamook Cheese is made. We found out about different types of cows and the milk they produce. We had a bird’s eye view of the cheese making and packaging of Tillamook cheese. They produce 167,000 pounds of cheese each day. We tasted the delicious varieties of cheese after the tour. Cali loved the squeaky cheese curds and Marcus enjoyed the medium cheddar. We all shared the five scoop ice cream sampler!
On our way home we made a trip to the light house at Cape Meares. Again there were more curvy roads, but the payoff at the cliffs was worth it. We took a tour of the lighthouse given by a very knowledgeable volunteer. The more we travel the more I come to appreciate the people who give their time to make each place meaningful.
