Day on the coast

I walked the beach at sunset last night after re-reading my journal and it's hard to believe this trip is almost over. I wistfully left Pacific City this morning and pedaled north up the coast scenic route. I stopped at Cape Lookout and went for a hike to the end of the cape. The trail has wonderful views both north and south on the coast. I've lucked out with another sunny day here. Then I rode onto Tillamook. I'm now a little closer for my last day's ride into Portland tomorrow.

Oh, and some photos...
