~ ~ How far can Timothy spit a pickle slice? ~ ~On Tuesday, we headed to Rockaway Beach, OR, and were able to use a hotel voucher for our room, which we purchased back on the 4th of July from their Chamber of Commerce auction. It was a $50.00 purchase, with $20.00 of it being in the form of a gift certificate to a nearby restaurant. So, since we needed to eat lunch anyway, I guess we could say that our hotel room, which was right on the beach, was only $30.00:) ?
~ ~ You can never have too many free samples of Tillamook cheese or double ice-cream cones right? So, off we went, once again, to the Tillamook Cheese Factory! ~ ~After our return home from Oregon, the temperatures really heated up, and we decided to get Meemom and Papa Bob’s boat out of winter storage and take her for a spin! It was a good thing, as she did need a little TLC in the form of a new battery.
~ ~ Watch out everyone! Captain Joe is at the helm! ~ ~
~ ~ Ah, that’s better. He’s upfront, being the scout now! ~ ~
~ ~ Time for some intertube fun! ~ ~
~ ~ Boating is very relaxing as you can see from the following photos! ~ ~
~ ~ Before the grand demolition derby finale, they had several smaller races. The next photo is of the cars driving backwards toward the finish line! They also did a “figure 8” race! ~ ~

~ ~ I think this was my very first demolition derby. And it was quite the redneck experience! ~ ~More photos of the fair coming soon!
