Travel Diary - Tuesday July 28, 2015

Date: Tuesday July 28, 2015
Theme/Title: Impressed with Oregon
Overview: A run and walking tour started off our day in Portland. Got some donuts at Voodoo Doughnuts and picked up our rental car. Quick lunch before a long drive south, crossing over to the coast and stopping around midnight just inside the California border.
Woke-up: 7:00am for a run on the trails along the Williamette River, Portland
Transportation/Distance: 3km run, 2km walking, 580km driving.

Driving Through Beautiful Oregon Forests
Backstreet Boys playing. We do road trips right!

Meals: Egg sandwich and coffee at a cafe after our run. Salad at Just Bob on Alberta Street, Portland. Healthy snacks in the car. Burger at King Neptune's Drive-In in Winchester Bay.
Highlight of the Day: The moonlit ocean.
Lesson Learnt: Gas stations don't seem to be 24hrs. Fill up before 10pm.
Song of the Day: Anything from The Backstreet Boys!
Quote of the Day: "Good job Oregon." Me, after Teri and I were discussing how much we had liked Portland and how beautiful the Oregon scenery was on our drive.
Night's Accommodation: America's Value Inn Crescent City - sketchy and overpriced

Glad to hear about your healthy meals especially after a start with donuts! Sounds like such fun.
