  1. That is a great photo of T holding the “mancake”! I think a pancake that size is overkill though, haha.

    Love your PDX posts! Makes me want to make another trip up.

    RE: Goonies – that’s so cool that you got the same POV shot of the rocks from the hill! We took pix at the Goonies house as well, and visited the Astoria Tower while we were there (great views because it’s the highest point in that town) and also the former Astoria Jail, which is now a museum featuring props from the Goonies movie and info about other movies filmed in Oregon (includes “Stand by Me”). This was the same jail in the opening sequence of the movie. The Tillamook factory was also fun to visit but we got them at the tail end of the day so we didn’t get to see much of the factory workings. The ice cream, though! Great berry flavors they had and flavors of cheese that aren’t sold in SoCal.

    Your charcuterie plate looked so good at Olympic Provisions…another place we’ll have to hit up for a future visit.

      Hi CC – writing these posts makes me miss Oregon haha! Hopefully we’ll make a trip again one of these days. So many places to explore. I will we had visited the jail or knew about, that’s sounds really cool. I want to visit Salt & Straw in LA now, they have some cool sounding flavors.

    I like “traveling” with you guys! That smothered badass looks really tasty to me! I’d totally skip pancakes though. The cheese factory would be something I’d totally visit. Mmm, just imagining eating samples and then food made with the cheeeeeeese. those hand pies sound really good too! hmm, portland does sound more interesting after reading your travel posts. =D

      Thanks, Lynn! Yeah, I wouldn’t get those pancakes again, either. In general I do like pancakes, but I only want one. Then I want savory stuff! Portland had a lot of great restaurants and it was very beautiful up there. I’m glad we finally went, I’d been wanting to go to Oregon for a long time.

    Thanks for the shout out, Mary!! Of COURSE we were jealous of your special goodies at Olympic Provisions….but on the plus side for us, it’s only 20 minutes away. Lol

    Too bad Jake and I didn’t have about another hour to talk baseball….we almost had all the problems with the game solved!! 🙂

    Great writing, again! Can’t wait to see where you go next…..

      Hahah, well… yeah, there is that. You can go back and try those hand pies pretty much whenever you’d like to. We’ll just have to stick with our memories and the photos for now! Return jealousy is ensuing 🙂 I’m pretty sure you and Jake could have talked about baseball for the rest of the night, Jake doesn’t meet too many people that passionate about baseball! Again, it was great meeting you guys!
