So time for the next food stop. This was definitely one of the better ones so far too. We stopped at The a Fish Peddler for some oysters. Biggest oysters I've ever had. They were fu#%!^g fantastic!! Got out of there and takes to one of the local LEO's and asked him if he could give me a policeman's version of a doctors note in case we got pulled over. Didn't work. Nice guy though. Gave us a few tips on some overlooks to stop at along the way.

After oysters we came across this street (I'm from Miami, FL.) and stopped at one of the overlooks the cop had mentioned. This one was in Nehalem. This is also where the button on my Dainese jacket popped off. Gonna have to take it to the D-Store in SF. The thing brushed up against my tank bank and literally broke right off. Shouldn't happen so easily. Must just be defective. Never had a problem with any of their other stuff.

We pulled into cannon beach at around 6 PM or so. I led Stephanie to one of the dead end streets that ends at the beach. As has been the norm wherever we stop, we were approached by a gentlemen that must have been in his early forties and his mother and he asked about the bikes and the trip. We exchanged stories about our trip and about some trips he's taken with his wife. His mother was a sweet a lady as you can imagine, even giving Stephanie a lucky penny ;). I told her we'd gladly take it and told her of the small bit of bad luck we had to begin the trip. Add them also to the list of nice people. Of course, we also drove over to haystack rock. I'll post those later since they are on Stephanie's camera. (cont...)
