May Micro-Tour day 3
With the shift in the tour route I now was able to take a day off and spend it on the beach.  So I did.  I spent the morning on the beach, walking up and down, taking pictures and letting the constant wash of the surf cleanse my mind. After a few hours on the beach I decided that I’d go out for lunch (the only time on this short jaunt) and rode into Westport where I went to the same cafe I went to last time I was here.

Cranberry Road Winery and Bogwater Brewpub

On my way back I stopped at the Cranberry Road Winery and Bogwater Brewery. They didn’t have any of their beers ready for consumption yet — they’ve only been around since Nov. 2012 — but had plenty of other brews on tap. I had a couple and then took a growler of Rogue Double Chocolate Stout back to camp.

Dungeness Crab (dead)

I took another good long stroll on the beach enjoying the rather grey day. It wasn’t too cold, but definitely not as sunny and hot as it had been. The skies began to break up toward the end of the day and it would be much clear on the following day.  Back in camp I drank my beer and ate some shelled peanuts while I read news on my iPad.

The pleasures of camp

Eventually I made dinner and after cleaning up, took an evening stroll out to the beach. The sun had and it was nearly dark out at the beach. The clouds were rolls of darkness with a faint gloaming in between.  After a brief jaunt in the wind and waves it was back to the tent for some reading, journalling and sleep.
