Cottage Grove was our next destination and the Row River Bike Trail. We rode with Benton in his puppy-coach, a coach he's not too happy about, but tolerated. A good ride, but not fabulous, probably because we were starting to smell home.
We arrived in Eugene the following morning with every intention of staying there another day and night and riding their bike trail before heading home. But, by that time, we'd totally turned into homing pigeons and Whidbey island was the only thing we could think about. After strolling the beautiful green streets of Eugene and enjoying coffee it was over. Back to the car and onto I-5 headed home. We made it in a straight shot -- home again. Beautiful garden! Beautiful home! Beautiful island!
