Kenmore, WA – Mason Lake

50’s; partly cloudy

Today started off well. I stayed at Sam’s so I shared her bed with her, the cat, and the two dogs. Not the best night sleep. Tonight I will sleep like a champ.

I got started at 11:13 AM PST. It was 18 miles to downtown where I caught the ferry to Bremerton. The ride went well but I could feel the 60 pounds behind me.

My former manager, Scott, met me downtown and we had lunch before I took the ferry. I’m on the ferry now. It appears we’re getting close to docking, so I’ll write more tonight after dinner.

Okay it was bound to happen, yes I got lost! I second guessed myself when I got to a highway that I didn’t think I was a allowed on. Not thinking that I just was in a bike lane, a short distance back should have told me it was ok. That set me back about 4 miles. I was pissed for all the wasted time.

I didn’t get to my stopping point until close to 7 PM. I felt some mist while on the road but hoped it wouldn’t turn to rain. It did about the time I was about to unload. I also found out I forgot my tent directions. Yes, I broke one of the top 10 hiking rules and never set my tent up before going on a trip. I had to re-adjust it in the rain.

I’m tenting behind a bath house on Mason Lake. The place is called County Park. It’s flat and I’m now dry. Let’s hope it’s not raining in the am.

If you’re wondering, I have already asked myself why am I riding to Campo. It was a lonely day once I got on the ferry.
