A lot of traffic on Labor Weekend

In the early morning fog we started to Westport to have breakfast in a cafe. Since we had covered a great distance the day before and another long stage was planned for the current day, we needed a calorie-rich refreshment.

In the course of the morning the fog gave way to orange haze from the forest fires in the interior. Thus, the beautiful winding road along the partly wild coast unfortunately did not show itself from the most beautiful side. All the more we enjoyed the sections in the forest with the pleasant cool/humid climate.

During the lunch break we could observe exciting attempts, like parking sideways. We assume that this might not be looked at in depth here in the driving school :-)

In the afternoon we crossed a tunnel for the second time. Due to some close overtaking vehicles we now took a little more space on narrow roads. Since the car directly behind us in the dense oncoming traffic thus did not want to / could not dare an overtaking attempt, the cars behind began to honk. Although some were probably a bit pressed, we were overtaken after the tunnel by all decently and with distance.

Shortly before Florence we met Sigrid and Kevin again, the touring cyclists from Wisconsin. Together with them we washed our clothes at the local laundry, cooked a dinner and played Farkle again.

A traveler from England, who had already heard about us in the cafe in Newport, also stayed at the campground. The Swiss with the huge bike were apparently themed there after our breakfast :-)
