Day 20

30 July 1997 (cloudy; some sun; mileage = 52.9; Leland Lake Recreation Area) -- A - We managed to get up shortly after 6 this morning. We did pretty good with our new places for everything. I think we'll be able to handle the new way pretty well. I like it. We had a quickie breakfast and exited. We stopped at a farm where Chris got some blueberries and some raspberries. It was only $2 for both, but they weren't as good as the ones in Canada a couple days ago (I did not have any). We got to the ferry just in time to get on for a change. It was a quick ride to Pete Townsend. We found some tables at a dock and had lunch and then wound up touring this up-on-a-hill town to find a grocery. There were lots of boats to see, which was neat. We found a shop where they make kits for wooden boats (mostly kayaks, I think). Chris got a brochure and seems pretty impressed by it. We found a perfect box by a recycling bin and recycled it on the spot -- into a box to send home the front panniers from my bike and the low rider racks and some stuff sacks. It took a while to get that all ready to go, but it was worth it. Then we hit the Safeway where Chris had the interested-old-man phenomenon again. It was 2 PM by the time we got on our way again. We were scheduled for a 66-mile day, but we came across a state park (X - no a city rec area) not indicated on the map. No showers, but it's only $6 and we've had a long day, so here we are. Dinner will be salad, sandwiches and fruit.
