DAY 66 ZERO in Salida

JUNE 18th 

So great to have a lie in ,in a soft comfortable bed  

But even though its a zero I have chores. 

I got up and went to see what they provided for breakfast. 

I grabbed a coffee  and  then got scrambled egg.sausage and hash browns. The breakfast was tasty so I had more washed down with orange juice. And to finish off toasted bagel with jam.

Okay to the postoffice. 

It seems recently that  what ever end you stay at  in town,it is great for somethings but not for others.

Typically  every thing in Salida  is downtown  over a mile away .

But it’s a lovely  day as I set off in search of the Post office.and its a carnival weekend  so there is a buzz  in the air.

I walk past about a dozen floats and people in costumes.

Eventually I find the post office  and yes both pairs of shoes are here. (Thank god !) I bounce 1 pair and take the others with me.

I watch the rest of the procession  then do some window shopping.

There’s a great outfitter so i have a wander ,there’s a few items I quite like but the price is too high.

But they have sterilising tablets  which I’ve been looking for for my water bladder.so result.

Just around the corner there is street dancing. So I visit the bar opposite  and enjoy a few pints and a reubens (sandwich)

Have to say I’ve tried a few and this is the best so far.

Okay time to head back  . As I wander back I’m pleasantly  surprised at all the houses all different shapes and sizes  and all unique . 

Once back  I try and track down my missing packages. But ideally  it’s best done on a pc not a phone. Sadly it’s just not user friendly.okay next town then.

Okay it’s a zero. So relax  crap tv  a couple of beers and chips 

In-between I slowly packed up  

Back to the trail tomorrow.fingers crossed with the weather as  its looking like rain 

And fingers crossed for a ride.

Mileage   Zero
