Pulled off Interstate 5 in Eugene, Oregon for some dinner. We picked a downtown restaurant called "Ambrosia" where we could sit outside and keep an eye on our bicycles.
We lucked out: the food was perfect and the service friendly-- perfectly prepared bass and halibut (a nice light dinner to balance the burgers from lunch).
At the neighboring table was a father having dinner with his son and daughter (maybe U of Oregon students?). The father claimed to have done a full United States tour in his youth.
