We were up for a little camping trip as the weather promised to be dry, in the 40s, and some sun possibilities. Though I thought I might get 2 days of riding, I ended up with but one for a variety of reasons. But it was a good one and I will not complain as we had a grand two night stay at the State Park practically to ourselves!
Birch Bay is a small resort town on, well Birch Bay. It is just northwest of Bellingham and a true delight I think. Riding along the bay at this time of year is a quiet ride with little to no traffic as we make our way to Semiahmoo Marina at the end of a two mile spit — appropriately named Semiahmoo Spit ;-). This being the halfway point we were able to find a hot chocolate for a warm up in the chilly air.
