Washington was nice. It reminded me of the Sunshine Coast, BC. It proved a nice way to ease into our adventure. A place to work out a good riding posture and cadence - I'm over a small bout of self-diagnosed IT band strain. Into our second week I am able to appreciate passing logging trucks for their smell of freshly cut tree and for the part they play in delivering fire logs to our next campsite. Drivers have been good about sharing the road.
It's a nice transiti0n from Washington to Oregon. The Oregon coast was designed to be enjoyed. Beaches here are designated state highways but we haven't seen any vehicles on them yet. The designation precludes the 400 mile Oregon Coast from private ownership. Which means some beautiful views yesterday and the days to come.
