Shop Small in Oceanside, Oregon, and enjoy a relaxing, romantic getaway at Thyme and Tide Bed and Breakfast.

Shopping Small adds up to Big Things. The coronavirus has upended daily life in Oregon, with travel and tourism being the hardest-hit industries. Small businesses have been crippled and are counting on all of us to rebuild, promote, and sustain our resilient communities.

The Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild asked our innkeepers to share what’s not to miss in their communities: restaurants, shops, parks, and we’d present a series of blog posts, extending a show of small business camaraderie and economic optimism.

Enjoy a relaxing and romantic getaway in beautiful Oceanside, Oregon at Thyme and Tide Bed and Breakfast. Sleep nestled in a canopy queen bed between Cape Lookout and Cape Meares. Fall asleep to the sound of the surf and wake up to a delicious hot breakfast. Beaches are a mile away. Filtered horizon water/sunset view from both rooms.

Tillamook Creamery is a must stop when visiting the Oregon Coast. The Tillamook Way is a way of life—the way our farmer-owners have done things since 1909. We cared for our farmer-owners, who cared for the land, which sustained healthier cows, which provided better milk. And better milk made better dairy products. It’s a simple recipe that we’ve followed for over a century and it has never failed. Shop small online here

Jacobson Salts: Founded in 2011, Jacobsen Salt Co. was the first company to harvest salt in the Pacific Northwest since Lewis & Clark built their salt works in 1805. Since then it has transformed from a local, small business to a nationally recognized brand as America’s leading salt maker. Harvested from the cold, pristine waters of Netarts Bay on the Oregon Coast, their flake and kosher sea salts have garnered worldwide favor. Shop Small online here

Two restaurant ideas
Roseannas’s Cafe has been a family owned business for over 35 years. They pride themselves on exceptional service and food for all customers. The fresh seafood, famous clam chowder and always homemade desserts are a staple in this little cafe.

The Schooner – Fresh, Local, Seasonal. Yep that’s their story, that and their one of a kind location. Fortunate enough to be located at the boat launch of beautiful, bountiful and pristine Netarts Bay, they make the most of all the bay and our surrounding community provide, the very best the Pacific has to offer.

Geminids best meteor shower 2020

Expect the best meteor shower of 2020 with the Geminids

Oregon has some of the largest expanses of dark skies in the US. Photographers come from around the world to capture the infamous shot of Mt Hood and the Milky Way. Dave Muller, a guest at the Old Parkdale Inn gave permission to share his capture.

With our large expanse of dark skies comes the opportunity to observe some spectacular meteor showers also.

The Geminids will be the best meteor shower of 2020. The Geminids occur every year from about December 4 to 16, peaking the night of December 13 into the morning of December 14th, with as many as 75 meteors per hour. Though it’s a chilly time in the Northern Hemisphere, the Geminids will peak at an ideal time, just one day after the new moon.

Ursids: Next period of activity: December 17th, 2020 to December 26th, 2020. The Ursids meteor shower usually peaks around December 23. At its peak, observers may be able to view as many as 10 meteors in an hour.

December is National Pear Month

December is National Pear Month and here in Oregon we believe pears should be celebrated all year long. But we’ll especially celebrate the bounty of pears in December when it is National Pear Month.

This video reveals the most common pears grown in Oregon and Washington but some growers have expanded their orchards with many more heirloom and lesser known varieties.

Nutritional Benefits

  • Fiber: A medium pear has 6 grams of fiber, which equals about 24 percent of the recommended daily value. Did you know that the skin contains the majority of the fiber found in a pear?
  • Hypoallergenic: With an ever-growing population of food allergies, pears have been coined to be hypoallergenic. Safe food is good food!
  • Pectin: Pectin is an essential water-soluble fiber that helps to bind to cholesterol and remove it from the body making pears an excellent addition to anyone with high cholesterol.There are endless culinary possibilities for the pear: eaten fresh, in salads, baked or added to a skillet meal. This is one of our favorite: Gingered Pear and Raspberry Pandowdy at the Old Parkdale Inn
  • There are currently over 350 pear growers in Oregon
  • The pear is Oregon’s Official State Fruit
  • Pears are Oregon’s number one tree fruit crop
  • Oregon’s total pear production ranks 2nd overall in the United States and 2nd in terms of fresh pear production
