Outings in Oregon

This past weekend Kevin's brother-in-law and sister came for a quick weekend visit. With visitors in town, we decided to do some fun Oregon stuff to do. Our first stop was in Tillamook, Oregon at the Tillamook Cheese Factory. Cheese curds were had and enjoyed by all. Our next stop was the coastal town of Oceanside, Oregon where we enjoyed a nice walk along the beach while the tide was out. After our walk we drove north on Highway 101 to Cannon Beach, Oregon, home to the famous haystack rock and site of the final scene in "Goonies" where the pirate ship breaks free of the cave and sails on the ocean.

On Sunday we decided to sample and tour some of Oregon wine country in Yamhill County. First stop was the Rex Hill Winery for a taste of Pinot Noirs and chardonnays. Next was the Argyle Winery for a taste of some sparkling wines and a few more Pinot Noirs. Last stop was the Torii Mor Winery for more Pinot Noirs. Overall, I liked the wines at the Argyle Winery the best.

We got to see some really great scenic views of the Pacific Ocean too. I'll download some photos soon and post them here.
