Vancouver to San Francisco Tour 2016 – A Cycle Tour by someone who’s never cycle toured before – Day 13 – Jessie M Honeyman State Park, OR – Sunset Beach State Park, OR

Today was the first day I was on a bit of a downer. This is probably when I should have had a rest day – to chill out, recuperate and cheer myself up. It was one of those days that if I wasn’t touring, I’d be going out or doing something to be alone.

So the hot weather continued. My English skin was taking a pounding even with sun screen on, but I did all that I could in order to prevent an evolution into a Lobster happening in a few days time.  As it was a windy day, there was a bit of wind chill going on, I had my long sleeves on.
