My last few days riding! On my way out of Salem, I stopped in the bird sanctuary of Plum Island. I saw many awesome bird species and was able to hang out and rest and enjoying the day.
More birds on Plum Island
I spent the night in Portsmith, New Hampshire. I spent the time with Jeff and Chris with their daughter Katie and her Irish husband Emmett. I spent the evening talking, eating burritos and s’mores, and watching Emmett get destroyed in Cribbage.
I spent today going up to biking up to Portland. It was only mildly rainy, and I was able to make good time up to Portland.
More mushy trails
I made it to Portland in excellent time (well technically South Portland, but close enough.) I made it! I have no clue what I am going to do now, as I was kinda putting off thinking about what I was going to do until I got here.
Once I road in I talked to people about the best ice cream in the area. I went to Willard Scoops, and they make their own ice cream from scratch. Their mint chocolate chip ice cream had real mint leaves in it!
I went out for Cider and Falafel with my portland hosts, Joe and Charley. After eating on the beach, we went and watched the sunset over the ocean.
