Anacortes to Concrete

We woke early(ish) and went for the free continental breakfast. Lack luster but it put food in our bellies. We stopped in Burlington for supplies and a brief rest. It was a very short ride today, 75km, and we had a tailwind most of the way. Tomorrow will be another story. After showering up, we went for some lunch at the restaurant and then walked the streets of Concrete. Not much going on in this 800 person town but the locals are all very friendly and we chatted with some of them on our walk. Our motel is pretty good. Large enough for 3 guys and 3 bikes and all our gear. Wood paneled walls and newer carpet. The WiFi is working well enough that I was able to have long Face-time conversations with both Alison and the girls. We have two beds and a pull out couch. I'm on the couch tonight as Francois had it last night. Jim and I did rock paper scissors for the pull out. I lost, I'm on the pull out and Jim will get it next time. Pretty good system so far.
