On the 28th I bid farewell to my Tai Chi family and head off to Bellingham. Rode about 45 miles today and was craving fried oysters the whole way. There was an oyster farm along the way but they did not shuck or prepare oysters there so that did not work out.
I had tried to find a warmshoers.org host but it did not work out so I pricelined the 3 star Best Western for $60. Very nice hotel and room and it is next door to a Fred Meyers superstore where I can get food and beer.
