Seattle to Portland day 2

We ended yesterday in Vern’s home town, we spent the night in the home once owned by one of Vern’s high school classmates.20120715-200404.jpg20120715-200419.jpg
The dog spent the night just outside next to the back door.

The day started out with a cool lite rain for the first 5 miles. After that the roads were dry but we didn’t see the sun until we reached Portland.

89 miles later we finished the ride in downtown Portland. We enjoyed the finish with thousands of our new friends.

As we left the finishing ceremonies there were still people coming to the finish line. We meet my nephew Paul for dinner. Paul lives in Portland and is an avid cyclist, we were hoping he would be riding with us but can’t. Some people still have to work.
