    Wow! It was 8:30 when we woke up. These old folks were tired after fixing that air leak yesterday! We had waffles at the hotel and then I started on the prior day's Ride Report. Check out time was 11:00, we walked to the moto at 10:58!

    ¡Wow! Eran las 8:30 cuando nos despertamos. Estos ancianos estaban cansados después de arreglar ese escape de aire ayer! Teníamos gofres en el hotel y luego empecé en el día anterior Ride Report. Hora de salida fue 11:00, caminamos a la moto a las 10:58!

    A man on a Goldwing followed us for 15 miles when we left the hotel, but at the first small town, we made a turn and he did not.

    Un hombre en un Goldwing nos siguió durante 15 millas cuando dejamos el hotel, pero en la primera pequeña ciudad, hicimos una vuelta y él no.

    We see many commercial fishing boats out working! Tourism is very low this time of year.

    Vemos muchos barcos de pesca comerciales trabajando! El turismo es muy bajo en esta época del año.

    For my Mexican friends that equate the Pacific ocean with warm temperatures, you would be very surprised here! It is in the 50s F and 60F temperature. Modesta was very surprised, she is accustomed to the temperatures on the Pacific Ocean in Acapulco.

    Para mis amigos mexicanos que equiparan el océano Pacífico con temperaturas cálidas, usted sería muy sorprendido aquí! Está en la temperatura 50s F y 60F. Modesta estaba muy sorprendida, está acostumbrada a las temperaturas en el Océano Pacífico en Acapulco.

    Mr. Fisherman had given us a number of restaurant options here in Astoria, Oregon, but due to our very late breakfast, we were not close to being ready for lunch.

    We finally stopped for lunch. Modesta had a Chicken Strip Plate, I had a Chicken Fried Steak and we shared a bowl of Clam Chowder. It was Modesta's first time to eat Clam Chowder and she liked it!

    Finalmente nos detuvimos para el almuerzo. Modesta tenía una placa de pollo tira, tuve un pollo frito bistec y compartimos un plato de clam Chowder. Fue la primera vez de Modesta para comer Clam Chowder y le gustó!
