Three days gone by! They’re really starting to blur together into one long day. Every place we stop, we get asked where we’re coming from—and we both stare at each other and try to remember. So, on Monday we took a day to rest in Lincoln City at Devil’s Lake State Park. The city isn’t great (bookended by a casino! and an outlet mall!), but the park was nice and the beach was lovely and it was a good place to not do anything for a day.
Yesterday we got back on the bikes and rode to Beachside State Park north of Yachats. We made great time with a tailwind, so we had a few hours to relax on the beach (I took a nap; Jacob dug a hole).
Today was a tougher ride with strong headwind, rain, and much chillier temperatures, barely getting to 60 degrees. We rode about 60 miles to get to Tugman State Park, where we had reserved a yurt to get a break from our tent and sleeping on the ground.
