Seems like we are making slow progress but the terrain is just endlessly rugged. Barely a flat spot anywhere, just endless ups and downs. Our shifters are getting a workout as we are constantly shifting up and down for each hill.
Before leaving the KOA this morning we had to make one final tree climb
A couple hours into the morning ride I heard a shout from Catalina as she had spotted a group of seals on the rocks far below. So it was as good of a place as any to make a morning rest break. Can you spot the seals? There are 13.
For lunch we rolled into the tiny town of Stewarts Point and had lunch at another tiny old general store. This one was built in 1861 and is still going strong. Plus it had a nice outdoor deck so no eating on the sidewalk or mill crates this time. Grandpa and I ordered Ruben sandwiches and they warmed up some meat loaf from the deli for Catalina. Food is generally excellent at these little stores.
So we biked up and got a room at the Ocean Cove Lodge.
Tomorrow we are going to bike the remaining 30 miles to Bodega Dunes and hope to arrive early enough to snag a hiker biker site. I expecting campground sites will be more and more precious the closer we get to SF this weekend. That will leave 58 miles for our final day to the Golden Gate on Sunday.
