Day 36 - The last day

When we started the day I had no expectations of good riding. As it turned out we had a great day starting with catching the early ferry since Rick and I had both got up early. So, we made the 7:20 out of Lopez instead of the planned 10:40 getting there only about 10 minutes before they closed the gate.

We had breakfast at Calico Cupboard in Anacortes, a little city that reminded me of Benicia, CA in a way.  Then we set off on another boring highway route 20.  That changed soon when Rick said let's make a left at Whitney Bayview Rd.  That eventually turned into Farm To Market Rd and then over to route 11 or known locally as Chuckanut Rd.  What would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck a nut?

Then when we got to Bellingham, Rick consulted some local garage salers and got directions to the bike path/boardwalk into downtown Bellingham and our hotel.  Way to go Rick and great way to end the trip.

A really nice downtown bike trail

Over 2000 miles in 35 days.  A great trip.  Thanks to Rick and Jerry for extensive pre-ride planning and Rick for leading this adventure.  Kiara should be congratulated on the best bakery sniffing nose ever - if there is a good bakery in town he could find it with his eyes closed.

Back at home in Mount Shasta - the cat seemed happy to see me!
