Cleon to Westport
Today was a rest day, we rode 5 miles back to Fort Brag and hung out at Starbucks for 3 hours. I got to catch up on some much needed work and more importantly have a Pike Place roast. My close friends Jerry and Judy gave me a Starbucks gift card before leaving, so I was happy to put it to use for the first time. I can’t thank them enough for all their support over the last 6 months and will be looking forward to some of Judy’s cooking and hanging with them when I get back.
So after some catchup on work and some much needed down time we ran a few errands in town, I picked up a stove so we could have two, and then around 2:00pm we headed the 5 miles back to camp, grabbed our gear and headed out the 15 miles for Westport.
In Westport we stayed almost directly on the beach where Kyle joined us again and a younger man, coming from the north, named Mike, also camped for the night. When the map said primitive, it meant primitive, but at least there was a spigot with fresh water. The sunset followed by the stars at night, unencumbered by any artificial light, were spectacular. But it got cold and dewy fast. I huddled up in the tent and at that point had put the camera away. No star photos but I'll grab some soon.
Note to self, do a better job of taking photo's with all the people we meet and writing about it.
Miss you Muppet
