Started the day in Hood River. Took the exit at the Bonneville Dam and found a section of the historical highway 30 had been converted a bike trail, so I stopped and rode a few miles:
The bike trail ends at the Eagle Creek trail head:
I then drove on over through Portland to the coast. The weather changed dramatically. It’s been raining continuously for hundreds of miles as I drove down the coast from Tillamook to Florence. Here’s a shot:
The hotspots are pretty rare in this section of the coast. I finally found a good one at the China Bay Chinese restaurant. Food was good and the wi-fi was fast. They also have a very talented group of karaoke singers. I wouldn’t have known they had wi-fi but for a conversation with a local. I told them they should put a big sign out front – it would bring in a lot of travelers.
