Clam Beach RIde

Spun a leisurely 25 miles to Clam Beach and Little River State Beach. I saw a river otter diving for food, egrets, banana slugs, cows, cats, dogs, lots of bids, and seals.

It was beautiful. I saw big puffy cumulus clouds in the Mad River valley, flat dark rain clouds to the north, and sunny heavenly back-lit clouds to the south and west. The light today was perfect for spotlighting a single swath of sea. A mile out on the ocean a large unbroken ray beamed down and sparkled brightly. It was dazzling, even from my vantage point in the perpetual mist of Clam Beach.
