We had an order of calamari and a couple of beers. The beers were really good, all those medals are probably deserved. Then Vicki had cioppino, which she thought was just OK, and I had a burger with roasted poblano peppers and mozzarella cheese which, as burgers go, was certainly better than average. So, a nice meal. But here's the thing, the tab with tip came to over $100. Now I know we went in with our eyes open and had the option of walking out and going to McDonalds instead, so we have no one to blame but ourselves. Still, a hamburger and a bowl of fish soup shouldn't cost that much. It was a good lunch but we can't afford to go back any time soon.

The local farmers eventually figured out the advantages of larger scale production and banded together to form the Tillamook County Creamery Association in 1909. Over 100 years later, the co-op is still owned by the member farmers and has grown to absord almost every significant dairy farm operation in the state. Their main factory is still in the city of Tillimook and you can take a self-guided tour at your leisure, looking down on the production facilities from an overhead platform.

On the way back south we needed a few things, so we stopped in at a local grocery store and got some milk, eggs, bread, a couple of 9mm Berettas and an AK47.
