Depoe Bay, OR

Argh! After a few days of absolutely beautiful weather and scenery, Thursday was another day of constant rain---and this time, we had to deal with a headwind, also. On the bright side, it was warmer than the other day of constant rain that we had, but it still wasn't much fun.

Anyway, Michael Forte's parents have a place in Depoe Bay, so we're spending two nights here recuperating and drying off. It also means that I finally have real internet access, so I can post some pictures...

First of all, here's the current Ben Mathews look. Ryan and I both shaved our heads before starting the trip, which turned out to be a great decision, since we don't have to bother with our hair at all. (Of course, it does mean that we have to be sure to apply sunscreen to our heads, but that's not too bad.)



Some people want to know what our bikes look like with all of the gear loaded onto them, so here are some examples:





Some random images from the pirate festival that we went to last weekend:







Here's a small sampling of the beautiful scenery around Cape Disappointment, at the mouth of the Columbia River. (Despite it's name, it was very beautiful. Our campsite had some incredibly ravenous mosquitoes, though...)





And here's Ryan trying to imitate one of the Oregon Coast Bike Route signs. (We're roughly following this route, but occasionally we do stray from it if our book or maps tell us to.)



That's just some of the pictures; if you want to see more, check out Ryan's gallery.

Are you sure this isn't covering for premature male pattern baldness?
