12-09-18 Tuesday 169 Days riding- 32 miles A tour of a cool Light house Museum and Attack of the Raccoon.
The Sand Dunes of the Oregon coast are legendary and moving in land.
A view back Hwy 101 takes us away from the sand and waters edge along here.
Every once in awhile a logging truck goes by. I always wave at em coming back – so they may be looking for me when they have a load. besides they wave back and honk their horns. Besides all the extra paperwork for running over me, you wouldn’t want to hit some one who waved at you a couple of hours ago.
another narrow bidge way – these old bridges are not ADA compliant. But they are really cool anyway. another narrow bidge way – these old bridges are not ADA compliant. But they are really cool anyway.
Going over the draw bridge section.
The Umpqua Light house and Lifesaveing rescue station. Really cool museum. Meet up with Dave and Mary from last nights camp. They are from Vermont and came out to ride down the Oregon coast. Dave and Mary a only a little younger than me, unlike all the other kids in their 20s and 30s.
Umpqua light house and the attack of the Racoons. This is one of night photos trying have the flash scare them off. PS Bear spray works, and I don’t recommend it unless you have a good stiff breeze behind you. A calm day or night is not good, the stuff drifts around. One of bandits took a half full jar of peanut butter off the table and a couple of them ate all the blackberries out of the pot. The next camp did none better, a raccoon unzipped his pannier and took all his food out of hit. Counting shining eyes there were at least 6 of em. Oh yea after the other camp a little down wind stopped coughing and whining, The raccoons were gone for the rest of the night.
