Best hosts ever… We talked until after 10:30 with Molly, Jen was at a concert. They have a small house on the north side of Bellingham. We had the choice of setting up tents in the back yard or a combination of one bed, one couch and a spot on the living room floor. We took what’s behind curtain B. Jen came home around 11:00, introduced herself to the living room campers and said goodnight.

In the morning, I went for a walk around town before everyone was up. The view from the north side
By the time I returned, everyone was up and our hosts were making a hearty breakfast. We sat around and shared stories, exchanged information and finally got going about 10:00. We could have stayed all day but we had over 70 miles to ride. They shared a couple of route suggestions and we were on our way. Molly left-center, Jen right-center.
The riding was warm, the Chuckanut road was like riding the coast, the Centennial Trail was the nicest rails to trails pathway yet.

We are staying with an Adventure Cycling ride caterer who is cooking us a pulled pork dinner. Great way to end a day.
Tomorrow, a 40 mile ride to Seattle and the end of the adventure.
