It was a rainy day at the beach. We had to occupy ourselves indoors.
Tom had decided he wanted to buy a Tablet/Reader. He had been studying them a bit. He decided if he found one here in Oregon he wouldn't have to pay sales tax. We checked at Fred Meyer and they had a Samsung on sale.
We went to the in-store Starbucks for coffee and use of their WiFi, fired up Suzie, who is v-e-r-y s-l-o-w these days. She bogged down.
In the evening we went to dinner at a restaurant with WiFi and I was able to discover that CNET rated that Samsung Tablet as one of the top five.
Today we went back to FredMeyer and bought it, took it to the Starbucks coffee shop, where we had lattes, and got Tom's new toy up and running, sort of.
We had shopping to do at the Tillamook Cheese Factory for Jill, and we were there at lunch time, so Tom had a fancy grilled cheese sandwich and I had an Udderly Chocolate hot fudge sundae.
Back at the cabin I worked all afternoon on trip plans. Without the distractions of home, I was finally able to map out the third leg of our New England trip, the New York State portion. Now we'll have to stage it out in days and see if we can fit it all in.
Tom played with his new toy, learning how to take photos, what all of the buttons and icons do, and so on.
This evening we went out to dinner at our favorite restaurant here on the coast and had razor clams. Now we are back at the WiFi restaurant having dessert and coffee so that we can use the hook up to post (me) and play (Tom).
And the worst part is it's too stormy to walk it all off.
