I learned about capes today.  They are those masses of land that jut out into the ocean.  They are beautiful and powerful to behold, but they are also something else.  This picture is a snapshot of a small part of the elevation profile for today.
You see that pointed thing between Netarts and Sandlake.  That's a blasted cape.  I have a love hate relationship with capes.  I hate the climb, but I love the view.

After 2 days of spectacular weather and views, riding along the coast of Oregon, I bid it goodbye today.  The next ocean I see will be in VA.  The parting was bitter sweet.
