After Tillamook we left the main highway and rode on quiet side roads over one mountain pass to get to Cape Lookout State Park, arriving about 5 with plenty of time to visit the beach. Tomorrow is the summer solstice so days are as long as they will get here in the Northern Hemisphere. Here at about 45 degrees north latitude it doesn't start getting dark until about 9 pm and isn't really dark u nt after 10 pm.
The beach at Cape Lookout was nearly deserted. We had a good time exploring and making sand castles before cooking up some chicken noodle soup for dinner and going to bed.
