That evening, Patricia and I went and played some pool with Michaela and Paxton. We were both tired, so we didn't stay longer than about an hour.
Thursday morning, I got up, showered, ate some breakfast and then loaded up the car. I said bye to Patricia and then looked at the side door to the house and saw this:
I wanted to make my way down the Oregon coast to Cape Perpetua where there is a place called Thor's Well. It is near Cook's Chasm. I drove through Tillamook and passed the Tillamook Cheese Factory.
Unfortunately, Thor's Well doesn't seem to be accessible to the public, so I wasn't able to see it. But, the area around Cook's Chasm is absolutely beautiful, don't you agree?
So, back on the road up the coast.
After my drive along the coast and through the towns/cities along the 101, I turned east to head back to my parents' house. I had a specific stop in mind. A little place called the Otis Cafe. My brother, David, had taken me there for lunch last year when I was visiting when we went to the coast for a day of hiking, rafting and beach exploring. They have this bread...it's black molasses bread and it is BEYOND amazing! So, I stopped there and got the BLT w/white cheddar on the black molasses bread with a side of the creamiest clam chowder I've EVER had. MMMM! I also bought an entire loaf of the black molasses.
