From Depoe Bay we stopped at the outlet mall in Lincoln City because I was in desperate need of some new shoes and sandals, you can only glue on the bottoms so many times. Our last stop along the way was at Tillamook Cheese factory. We took the self-guided tour (we may have just skipped to the end where the cheese tasting is), bought some cheese and sausage and got an ...
