Honeyman State Park to Sunset Bay State Park

This morning, before we packed up, we headed out to the sand dunes, for which Honeyman is best known. Being early, the fog was thick coming off the Pacific, and hung low over the dunes and adjacent lake.

We had packed and set out by about 9am, and made quick work of the first few hills, stopping along the way to take a few photos of the lakes and flowers bracketing both sides of the highway.

After about two hours, we rolled into Reedsport ready for a big meal. We stopped at the first diner in town, the name of which we’ll have to search for later. Suffice it to say, we ate well and had lots of coffee. Soon after, Jo’s stomach started acting up, but we kept moving at a rapid rate, aided by a tailwind, along the 101.

We honestly can’t remember much more about this day. The towns are starting to run together a bit, but Sunset Bay State Park is a great campground and we got there without too much difficult. Dinner of bread with nutella, macaroni and cheese Mountain House, and a banana. Yum!
