Oceanside to Cape Lookout State Park 10/23/09
Day 7- 8 miles (Rest Day!)
Today we took our time and rode from Oceanside, past Netarts to Cape Lookout State Park. We stopped for around an hour in a nice little market in Netarts and ate lunch and bough some food for the night. We tried to rent a yurt for the night at Cape Lookout, but they are all booked up pretty far in advance. They are a great deal for $27. They have a heater and provide a nice dry place to sleep. Sometime before we leave Oregon we want to stay in one of these yurts. Luckily the rain from the morning subsided and we pitched our tent in the hiker/biker area of the campground. We spent the day relaxing on the beach along the campground and had a huge supper of burritos. We started reading Buffalo for The Broken Heart by Dan O'Brien aloud. It seems like a great book so far, excited to keep reading it. We went to bed early to top off our day of rest.
