Day 14 - The Long and Winding Road
Monday, September 17, 2012
We woke just before 6:30am. Our campsite had water and electricity, so we used our hot pot to boil water for coffee.
Brew in hand, we took Solo to the beach. Just as we were walking over the dunes, we looked back to see the sun peeping out over the distant hills. Beautiful!
Back at camp, we had cereal and the best public shower ever. We rolled on 101 at 9am, to continue our trek down the OR coast.
Our first stop of the day was Tillamook cheese. We bought some curds and had a hearty breakfast. A splurge on the diet with ham and eggs and lots of melted cheese.
Back on the road, we were treated to some of the most magnificent sights either of us have ever seen. The wild and rugged Pacific!
After about 250 miles and seven hours on the road we pulled into Humbug State Park just after 4:30 pm. Camp was set up quickly and efficiently and we took to the fire with brats, avocados and beer. Heaven in the wilderness.
We folded in early with our Kindles. Although the camp was right off of 101, I slept soundly but Bill had some fits of sleeplessness with late night highway cruisers.
