I don't have a lot of nice photos to show for today. When we got to Oregon Dunes state park, it was still completely socked in. I didn't take a photo until we got to the first SAG, at the Umpqua River lighthouse.

Our second SAG was in the town of Charleston, where I rediscovered my friend Charlie the tuna, who was there 4 years ago.
Right after the SAG, we made a turn on Seven Devils Road. This immediately puts you in a steep climb (I was told as much as 14%) for a mile or so. While I was still on the steep section, I came across 3 deer, but couldn't get the camera in the proper setting fast enough, so I can't show you. They didn't seem too worried about me. Once you get the initial grade behind you, the next ten miles or so are fun rollers.
When I got to Bandon, I was delighted to find my room has a great view of the harbor.
