Tuesday 8-3. I MADE IT:) Day 89 - 72 miles 4417 miles total. Salmonberry Park to Florence. The first leg of the day from Salmonberry Park to Waldport was very nice with rolling hills through rain forest on a quiet highway along the Alsea River. Had a wonderful breakfast dockside at Tidewater. At Waldport we got first sight of the Pacific and shortly after came the wheel dipping :) The ride down the coast on Pacific Coast Highway 101 was the most scenic of the trip. There were stunning views of the Oregon Coast and I stopped for many pictures. I also stopped at Haceta Head Lighthouse. This ride could be the best day of the trip except for the heavy traffic on PCH101. Victory dinner that evening was at International Seafood House in "Old Town" Florence, an eclectic area of restaurants, bars and gift shops on the Siuslaw River.
