MacKerricher State Park –> KOA near Manchester
We stopped at a coffee shop in Ft. Bragg 2 miles into our ride and asked locals about the sea glass beach that was somewhere in the area. We searched for it briefly and without much luck we continued south. The ride was relatively flat in the beginning, and we had a nice tail wind pushing us along. It was clear and the views of the coast were spectacular. We were in a relatively unpopulated area, and at times we felt like we had the beauty of the coast to ourselves and our bikes. Diane stopped to take lots of pictures.
Towards the end of the ride, the weather turned from clear, sunny and warm to foggy and cool. We arrived at the KOA near Manchester with a hot tub and clean bathrooms with free showers. The hot tub was extremely relaxing. And a nice warm shower and charged phones were added benefits of this campsite– its the little things we had lacked the past few days. We slept well that night.
