So great to wake up in great bed.
I woke at 7 doozed until 7.30 then went down for breakfast.
As I left my room I bumped into rocks +1 They were heading out today. Via walnut alternative which is what I will take.
I sat with another hiker while I devoured a waffle loaded with syrup & butter. Downed a few orange juices and a great tasting cup of coffee.
Once back into my room had a email from my credit card company Card was blocked so hopefully now working fingers crossed.
Okay chores.i took my pack downstairs and put it safely away.then I headed to find laundry..
It was fairly easy to find and opposite the post office .i went inside to checknthe prices.they had a change machine but i onky had a $20 and didnt want $20 in quaters . So i went to the post office .I picked up my package and brought some stamps to give me change
As I was waiting hawkeye and Kevin walked in wow great to see you guys .we did the small talk then I headed back to the laundrette
Back to the laundrette I changed a $5 into quarters and began my wash. the dry didnt take long so was soon out
Next stop hike & ,bike for gas. As I’m walking up the road I notice hawkeye and Captin Bob ( was Kevin) having lunch. I will call in here on the way back.
Okay hike & Bike.picked up gas and 2 pairs of socks.i have the Gila coming pronounced Hee-luh
And there will be numerous water crossings so hope my feet can survive !!.Next the gear store. I wanted to get a set of inner soles. I love wearing #Solomon’s but have found in the past when they get wet the inner sole can wrinkle and once that happens they never go flat and become a pain to walk on .
Also they do sock exchange so I swapped out my dead socks for fresh new ones . Result.
Next job provisions. I don’t need much .so off to family Basket about 5mins away brilliant all good .LUNCH
I stopped at the place where hawkeye was eating. I had loaded fries that was huge so needed two beers to wash it down.
I ended up chatting to a couple they were unaware of the CDT but were fascinated. Oh fed and water I went back to.my hotel to do NOTHING.
