We drove through the town of Tilamook and noticed the "baby loaf" buses at the cheese factory. We wanted to stop, but time wasnt permitting.

We stopped in Newport for lunch. Newport was sort of an organizational disaster, no parking and everyone everywhere. We decided to find a resturant away from the group and make it simple. We ate at Local Ocean Resturant. It was recommended online and we had a nice view of the harbor.

We drove towards Coos Bay on our own to meet up with the group around dinner time. We met at Pueblo Nuevo, a local Mexican Resturant in town. They had most of the dinning room reserved for us and they were nice people. The food itself was one step up from Taco Bell, it was rough on a Texan. I miss good salsa. We were invited by another couple to join them at one of the campsites nearby. We headed out to Sunset Bay for the evening. The organizers of Treffen actually had a fee sites reserved so it worked out for many of the campers.

Lots of Treffeners were at Sunset Bay, it was a great time. The showers were good too. We went down to the beach to photograph the sunset.
