In 2016 I stopped at Rockaway Beach and then went on to Oceanside for a quick lunch stop that overlooked the ocean, and therefore bypassing Tillamook — always favoring the coastline along my route south.
I knew Tillamook was famous for cheese — but I wasn’t much for cheese and so I didn’t prioritize a stop at the creamery. The coastline was absorbing and beautiful (as I may have mentioned). I simply couldn’t tear myself away.
But virtually, why not? So this trip includes Tillamook on the route.
My local Giant Delivers (formerly Peapod) carries Tillamook cheese (it is quite nice – I’ve used it to make pizza) and – better still – ice cream.
So, you know…. Over here making the virtual experience real!
(Why yes, ice cream is one of my more delicious but less effective coping mechanisms, why do you ask?)
Seriously though… Like wildfires weren’t enough, winter storms are in the forecast for the area IRL. Be safe out there, folks!
