A non-eventful and overcast day took us 80 km farther up the Oregon Coast. We still had the remainder of a tailwind in the morning, so with our early departure we rode along until we found a good location for breakfast. In Reedsport we found a good looking place and made our first stop of the day.
Jesse had some work to do so we decided to find the Starbucks in the next town, Florence. Though many places offer wifi, Starbucks tends to be the only place we really feel like we can loiter all afternoon. So we rode another 35km to the Starbucks in Florence. We rode around the old town area first, which was a nice little area, then continued on to find that Starbucks was located inside Safeway. This worked out alright since there was still a seating area and we could get some groceries as well.
Hours later, we decided to ride on to Carl G Washburn State Park. The headwinds had now arrived so it was a bit more of a push, but we made it without having to stress over the time. Upon arrival the friendliest camp host ran out to greet us. He’s also the only host who’s ever even said hi. We chatted with him for a while before heading to our site. Another cyclist was already in the hiker/biker camp and he is from North Vancouver so Jesse chatted with him for a bit while I finished my book.
