The Oregon Coast


Here are some more photos from the Oregon Coast!


'Yum 101' is right! We started out the day at the Tillamook Cheese Factory!  The Tillamook Cheese Factory is a century old, family owned cheese (and ice cream) business in the town of Tillamook on the Oregon Coast.  We've been coming to the Cheese Factory for ice cream on every trip to the beach as far back as I can remember--it is always a highlight.  They've just added this great 'baby loaf' vehicle for photo making fun.  Of course, my sister and I had to jump in and take it for a spin!

I think we got one of the last days of warm sunshine at the coast! It was a very warm 75 degrees (that is practically unheard of on the Oregon Coast). It was perfect weather to wear my hooded 1940's dress. It was also a great day for a stroll with my family and our beloved dog, Nikki.  Awwww...I love you guys! What a great photo!  But wait...there is someone missing.....


Who is that in the bushes??  We were ambushed by my sister! hahahahha.


We were practically the only ones on the beach.  We decided to hang around and watch the sunset and this lovely little baby seagull sat right next to us the whole time!


It was such a lovely sunset! There is something about being near the ocean that I find very calming and rejuvenating.  What about you?  Where are your favourite family holiday spots?

  1. I love ocean vacations. I'm not much of a fan of being in the ocean, but I love the smell of ocean air and watching the waves and boating! I've never been to the Pacific ocean, but I've been all up and down the east coast of the US everywhere from Maine to Florida.

  4. I don't recall how I stumbled across your blog but found the connection to Oregon right away.
    Then you did your Ness giveaway and I discovered another cool thing. A week or so later found me at a Lion's club rummage sale that advertised 'fabric'. This turned out to be $6/piece fabric but nevermind - because I found a purple plaid Ness bag for a dollar!

  5. I love the Oregon Coast. My Grand-Mom lives in Lincoln City. We visit her every August and eat at Kylos. Best clam chowder on the West Coast! We should try to plan our Oregon trips around the same time!

  8. Sounds wonderful, and yummmm Tillamook! You know me - I love Scotland as a vacation spot ;) But more affordable and far closer... Big Sur. It's my favorite place to just get away.

  9. How fun! I grew up in Salem, so we would go to the coast a lot. A little farther south, more around Neskowin and Lincoln City. I'm jealous, I haven't gone for several years...

  12. The Oregon coast is beautiful -- I was there recently like two months ago. Which beach did you go to?

    I plan to make a hooded dress soon too from a 40s pattern that I didn't buy (but I did save it's picture.)
