Day 23 Road Trip- June 11, 2008

Not much to blog today- it was a quiet, relaxing day. We did ride down the road a few miles to Roslyn, WA. What a charming little community. Originally a coal mining town, it was later known as the fictional town of Cicely in the filming of the series “Northern Exposure”. If you are familiar with the show, you may have seen The Brick Tavern.

Oh my… is that rain on our windshield? This was our first day with any amount of rain at all. Thanks to our Frogg Toggs we both stayed dry. We even saw a few flakes of snow falling. We decided with the rain and cold, to bypass Seattle this trip- so we didn’t ride the ferry.

Today was without a doubt a gloves day (I actually had on 2 pairs) – I think it turned out to be probably the coldest day so far of our trip- I’m sure Jan would agree with me on this one! Yup! She agrees…. It was cold!! I would love a nice 75 degree sunny day!

It ended up raining the majority of the day. I didn’t take as many pictures as I would have liked to, but my camera lens kept getting wet.

Day 20 Road Trip- June 8, 2008
What a scenic ride we had today- starting out following the coast of Oregon, and ending along the shores of the Columbia River. It was a bit chilly today. A part of me is excited for the warmer temps we will encounter as our trip progresses- but then I look at the weather report back home in SC, and cringe at the 100 degree temps awaiting us.
Day 20 Road Trip- June 8, 2008Haystack Rock, Cannon Beach, OR- This was my favorite spot of the day! We walked around a bit- hoping maybe we could find some “treasures” on the beach- we didn’t see any, but it was nice to stretch the legs for a few minutes.
