More Climbing, beaches, dinosaurs!

Port Orford to Gold Beach

Woke up to a beautiful morning. Took our coffee out to the breezeway so we could watch for whales and we were not disappointed!

No, I didn't get a shot of the whale but he was out there floating in the kelp beds!

Then we headed out about 9:30 and started climbing right away. 

What gorgeous views we had today.

We stopped in at Arizona Beach to sit at the picnic tables and have a snack. 

The Dinosaur place was right next to the Arizona Beach exit. Stevie is making new friends.

The Old Coast Road was dirt but well maintained and fun.

We showered and then headed down to the beach. There was a 100km run yesterday and today it was a 50 mile run. 

This gal came in fourth!
