    Bandon and the 'Treasures' of the Sea

    October 3, 2015 in the United States

    Laura and Elizabeth had raved about Bandon and it lived up to its reputation. We caught the farmers market and met Dan "the seaweed man", who gave us bags of nutritious and delicious seaweed and told us how to harvest more. We also met many other friendly folks at the market and in town as we deeked in and out of buildings to avoid the cold wind. The Washed Ashore art exhibit was recommended to us, and it was beautiful and informative. Volunteers have been cleaning up local beaches for years and then the artists turn the junk into beautiful art to raise awareness about the cost of disposing of our petroleum products into the ocean.Read more

    Day 9 :

    September 27, 2016 in the United States

    Woke up early this morning to a heavy fog that had settled on the coast. I rode into Bandon which is a quaint little fishing town just south of where I camped last night.

    There i stopped on the dock to get a cup of coffee and met another biker named Erik. He is slowly making his way up to Washington from Orange county. Like me, he was also 44 and hadn't been on a bike since he was a kid and just decided to pick up and go.

    We talked for a couple of hours, then I headed toward the beach. I walked around till the fog burned off, revealing yet another pretty day. Bandon beach is my favorite so far.

    I stopped in Laurel Grove at Something Awesome to browse the gorgeous chain saw wood carvings of some very talented artists. I was even lucky enough to get to watch some work in progress. A giant Groot.

    I stopped for a snack in Langlois at a store that advertised the world's greatest hotdog, so I had to get one. It was the best damn hot dog I've ever had. I went back in and got another. They made their own pickles and mustard, then added some onions. It was sooooo good!

    Next came Port Orford. It wasn't as nice a town as I had hoped, but the ocean was a beautiful green! I had planned on eating at the port, but the hotdogs ruined that.

    I ended my 32 mile day at humbub mountain state park. Got everything setup for the night, then walked to the beach where I ate my dinner of Van Camp's beans, spicy pork skins, and a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and watched the sunset.

    A perfect ending to this perfect day.

    And I passed 300 miles!!!!

    Bandon

    November 23, 2015 in the United States

    I drove down about 25 miles to the next coastal town and enjoyed the boardwalk area. I wanted to check out the art studio made with found objects on the beach, but they were closed for the remainder of the day. I did see all the great wood sculptures and taste ask the yummy candies at the Cranberry Sweets store. Then I headed to the of the grid house that my hosts, Scott and Steve, live on. We had pizza and played card games. They were so competitive and it was so funny to watch.Read more

    Yurt

    November 25, 2015 in the United States

    I met up with Paul, my new host, and his kids last night so I can say I've stayed in a yurt. It was basically a fancy tent or a really low key cabin. They were nice. I left and headed south to stay with Paul again at his home near the redwoods.
