Another 80-miler today, possibly in the rain, heading west along the Chehalis River, to Aberdeen and on to the fishing town of Westport, situated on a peninsula between Gray's Harbor and the Pacific. Westport will bring me to the Pacific Ocean for the first of many days to come. I'm leaving early, as the morning weather report now shows no rain here until 9:00, and a window between noon and 5:00 with no rain at my destination in Westport.
No complaints first half of the day. I'm almost 40 miles in and it's only 10:30. It's overcast but comfortable and I have only caught a few drizzles so far. Nice countryside but it loses something when you can't enjoy it against the backdrop of a blue sky. I'm in Elma now, getting some carbs for the final 40 at the Rusty Tractor.
