An Extra Day Stop

We chose to take an extra day at The Mill Casino RV Park since we arrived a day earlier than scheduled and they offer a Seafood Buffet that we were looking forward to enjoying but is only served on Friday and Saturday nights. The seafood and the service was definitely worth waiting for, and with the $5 early bird discount, we paid under $20 each for a very fulfilling meal.

On Saturday morning, the sun was shining but was forecasting more rain, but we headed out anyway. After only about 50 miles of more rain and fog, we chose to get off the road and stay overnight boondocking at Three Rivers Casino & Hotel. They had a good area that was just for boondocking rigs, located a short walk from the casino so we parked it and went inside for more play. The casino had many fun slots and we played for a long time without spending our budgeted amount. When we were done, it was still pouring down rain, so we got security to give us a ride to our rig. It poured and the wind whipped us around all night long. The security guard made a comment about needing web feet to live in Oregon, something we do not have and definitely nothing we want to grow.

On Sunday morning again, the sun was shining, so we shoved off again towards our destination of Tillamook, Oregon. We drove over 100 miles in more fog and just a misty rain, things are improving…YEA! The good thing about it is that our next destination is an indoor activity so let it rain all it wants…and it did!

We took a free self-tour of the Tillamook Cheese Factory, but of course we had to purchase lots of cheese and ice cream. It was a pretty neat place to visit.

Spent the night at Tillamook Bay City RV Park located a few miles north of the factory.

Please check out our separate reviews on our blog of the factory, the casino and check out our park review not only on our blog but at RV Parking as well. And, as usual, be sure to check out our photos on our Picasa Web Albums.

Love cheese factories. One year on our vacation we went to cheese factories in the morning and wineries in the afternoons. We had a blast doing that.

How far up the coast are you going? Do you know where you wil be selling Christmas trees? We found out we will be in Edmonds, WA starting on the 24th.

Be safe in your travels and thanks for your comments on my blog and facebook.

Love the Tillamook Cheese Factory. You are definitely in our neck of the woods. It's too bad you didn't get up there during nice weather. It's definitely gorgeous when the sun is out. I'll be interested to follow your travels and see what all you get to see.
