Wow a much better sleep emerged about 8am my fellow hikers were just leaving, heading off to re-join the trail. The bone in my toe is giving me issues. Seems as if my boot as shrunk.so plenty of painkillers .I waddle into town. Buy a new knife mine was rubbish. And id so loved the one that I had found but had to give it back to DC it was a Gerber and so Sharp then resupply. New flip-flops as I had thrown my others away (rash decision). Arrrrrr. Then gas. Postcards for family. Next it’s laundry time clothes in and relax as the machines do there best to get a week’s trail out of them , then it’s back to camp I hang my clothes out to dry , then it’s time for a a shower my second whoop, Mm I washed my hair twice had a shave I was going to relax but……
Lesson of the day after doing your laundry count your socks before getting back to camp !!.
so after my shower I limp back to the launderette to look for the missing sock and yes its still in the machine !!
Lets try the relax again so I sit outside the shower block charging my camera and phone. And chilling just ate two oranges I seem to have a craving for them . Decanted. my shopping from their boxes ,restocked my first aid kit mainly plasters and moleskin.
Later I needed to get some bleach tablets (for water just in case ) So I walked back up town got the tabs and some gloves and a selection of 4 beers to have with my supper oh and a canister of gas .
Ideho mash it’s really rather good..as I’m eating hikers began to arrive some familiar faces and new ones, there is Big red, Mika a lady from Germany and…..We sit and talk for hours before I need my bed
