After a long day of riding on Friday, we all decided to take today off. We were also told by a nice woman in Mendocino that there is a huge 4th of July Salmon BBQ in Fort Bragg today, so we thought we would stay to hang out. My mom and Haley are coming up to pick up my dad, so we will probably all hang out eating salmon and watching fireworks tonight.
I am still in a bit of a food comma from our enormous breakfast, so I am going to list things in this entry. I like lists.
Highlights from yesterday include:
-getting an early start on the road and avoiding wind
-incredible views on 1
-singing along to inappropriate songs then attempting to turn it down (without falling off my bike) anytime we started talking to hikers or bikers
-discovering sport beans
-meeting friendly coastal residents
-lunch: enormous sandwich, bread pudding, cheesecake, oversized chocolate chip cookie, almond milk chai (I’m trying to do the counting calorie thing on this trip)
-reading Mendocino fliers
-filling up water bottles for free
-ale singing “let’s get it on” to the hiker/biker tent community on her ukulele
-IT band massages
-showering with a broken shower that never turned off (karma comes back around)
thats all i got
