I am such a tourist

We stuck both North and South of Lincoln City today. I don't know what it is about Oregon, but they don't seem very original here. We drove through Salem, Dallas, Detroit, and now we're in Lincoln County. They also have a Portland here. They need one of the fantasy authors to send them some original names.

We went to the aquarium in Newport. We went there years ago, but it's always fun. I wound up with a tee shirt that has a big octopus on it, because I'm a tourist. Here are some snaps.

I was too short to make my beard stick out.

I took quite a few photos, but won't bore you with more than a few.

Fly my minions, and turn everyone into zombies.

We hit the Tillamook cheese factory to the north of Lincoln City. We ate so much grilled cheese stuff, I may need to visit the bran factory tomorrow.

I'd love to get an interview with Bigfoot for this blog. He isn't responding to my emails… Yet.

Tomorrow we are heading for Astoria. My wife is a huge Goonies fan, and wants to see where it was filmed. Maybe she can order some Rocky Road ice cream while she's there. The girls went to the factory outlet mall, and I stayed behind to update the old blog. They promised to scope out someplace that sells chowder and craft beer.

  3. I hear Bigfoot only uses Myspace. That’s why he’s so hard to find.

  4. Good old cheeze. Tillamook is great. I suggest a prune chaser.

  5. Lincoln City has a McMenamins brew pub. Excellent Terminator Stout and Ruby ale. And they make them both into delicious shakes as well. And the Terminator Stout Mustard is great. No, really! In fact, if you buy one and bring it to critique, I’ll buy it from you!

    Seaside Brewing looked like they were shaping up well, even if they were just upgrading their equipment the last time I was there. And Astoria Brewing. And… well, let’s just say I found a Oregon Coast breweries map and followed it.

  10. Awesome! I love your photo! Say hi to 3 of my sisters while you’re in Oregon. If you get through Portland and visit the Radio Room for some beer, ask for the manager, Sarah, and tell her her sister Rachel sent you. That’ll freak her out for sure. 😉 (I won’t visit myself…. I didn’t lose anything there.)
