Day 4: Bellingham to Oak Harbor

Day 4: South Bellingham to Oak Harbor, WA

Miles: 43

What I rode by: dog tag, Deception Pass

Instead of staying for the rest of the summer, we left our good friends Ari and Molly this misty morning and headed toward the islands in Puget Sound. We followed picturesque Chuckanut Drive along the waters edge south of Bellingham in the morning where I took a picture of this dog tag on top of a guardrail post.

The rolling hills turned into a flat road along the water. We had lunch at the Rhododendron Cafe where a nice couple next to us gave of the names and numbers of their relative around southern Washington and Portland in case we had an emergency. We rode onto Fidalgo Island after lunch and then to Whidbey Island over Deception Pass, under which the tide was rushing through.

All in all, it was a windy day (the second of many).
