Today-Landon, Susan, Mike, and I went to Manzanita Beach. It was a beautiful day, albeit a little windy out. We ate lunch, then had a nice hour or two long walk up the beach and back, then drank some wine, then drove back through Tillamook. We checked out the Tillamook Cheese Factory, motivated by our desire to eat cheese curds and consume 2000 calories-them babies is loaded with calories (about 120 per inch). I won't say how many inches of cheese curds I alone consumed, but it wasn't two or three, I'll tell you that much.

On the beach, there was a little sea bird that had either been mauled by a dog, or was waterlogged, or was sick. On our way back from our walk, the little guy seemed to be doing a tad bit better, but still seemed easy prey for the next dog that would come along. We fought back the tears and kept walking. I hope the bird died peacefully looking out to the ocean, or is now all better and back out at sea looking for treats in the ocean with its friends. I wanted to "save" it by "doing" something, but there wasn't anything to do. Sometimes you have to just keep walking and not look back.

After we came back home, we had soft tacos at Mike & Susan's, then watched "The Hunted," which was filmed in Portland, OR. Pretty good action flick. I hate to say this, but if you've seen one Tommy Lee Jones action movie, you've seen them all. This particular film was a little more interesting since it was filmed in Oregon, but the plot of the movie was generally the same as all the others-Tommy Lee Jones chasing bad guy-after long chase-bad guy is caught.

I'm very tired, and my skin is wind chapped and burned from the sun today. I must get to bed. I think I will read one chapter of "The Bell Jar" before officially calling it a day.
