My 1st stop was Corvallis, OR where I got to see 3 cousins and their families. It was a nice visit and I also discovered the Public Art Walk on Madison Street. See photos below (more photos are at: Public Art
From Corvallis, OR I headed south to Newport and then north from there.
I stayed the night at Tillamook at the Blue Heron French Cheese Creamery. They are a member of Harvest Hosts. his is an incredible service where you can stay at wineries, creameries, ranches and farms for free. All you pay is an annual membership of $44. If you mention my name, Wanda Pepin, you will get a free month off and so will I. It really is a great deal. www.harvesthosts.com.
Just as I was leaving town, I saw this and had to stop and take a photo. That would be traveling in style. LOL
Next are views of the Oregon coastline. Some of my favorite stopping places were Rockaway Beach and some of the pullouts right before the Washington border.
