This was a day that had a little of everything. First I have to say our night at the Overleaf was wonderful and to add to it we had a great dinner at a nearby resort called Adobe which had a semicircular dining room that looked out over the ocean. Tough to take.
As we began today, we had a fair amount of rain and had a couple of similar episodes of rain as the day went on but this was punctuated by moments of sunshine and clouds. There was some head wind but not bad. The scenery was great. The best was at the top of our one big climb today that rose about 600 feet to a bluff called Foulweather Crest that had a spectacular view. We saw a few whales spouting about ½ mile off shore from that lookout.
We traveled from Yachats to Lincoln City, a total distance of 53 miles and now have a total of 737 miles under our belts. For a relatively long ride for the day, it was one where we both felt strong and felt good throughout the ride. We saw several other bikers heading south on the same route including one couple on a tandem.
Overall, we continue to have fun and finally feel like we are on vacation and at rest.
