While we were in Astoria we ate at Fort George Brewery twice. I had the fish tacos both nights because they were so good the first time.  We also had a really tasty breakfast at the Columbian Cafe.  My favorite part was the really good toast and pepper jellies that they bring you before your meal.

My friend Rachel drove out from Portland on Friday so we got a chance to catch up.  We also spotted one of our old professors at dinner and spent a while trying to figure out if it was actually him (it was...we think).  On Saturday we met up with Rachel for coffee before we headed out from Astoria and headed south on the coast highway.

I decided that Tom had to eat at Mo's (an Oregon coast essential) so we stopped in Cannon Beach for lunch.  We both got Slumgullion (clam chowder with bay shrimp) in bread bowls and enjoyed the view.  Cannon Beach also happens to be the home of another Goonies landmark - Haystack Rock.

After lunch we went to the Tillamook Air Museum to check out the truly gigantic hangar (it was originally built for military blimps) and the neat old planes.
Tom really liked the engine area
Now we're in Corvallis visiting my dad, step-mom and grandma and eating really delicious food.
Tuesday we're off to the redwoods!
This rainbow was much brighter in person
But we could see pretty much the whole thing
