Total Miles: 1568
Pancake breakfast!! It really happened and it was asolutely delicious. The caretakers took care of us well this morning. Pancakes and coffee.. for free…you can’t beat it.
It was a super foggy quite morning. I headed down by the lake to take in the peacefulness again before I headed out. The water had calmed down…. Breathtaking.
Cookies? I am in.
After about ten miles in, we reached it on this fantastic weather day.
We hung around for a while, had some cookies and had some delicious. Delicious. Blueberries. Woodpile and I thought she should be named the Blueberry lady instead. She was growing blueberries and raspberries all over. But mostly…Blueberries.
While there I thankfully remembered that I was told from two different people that they sent care packages to me there.
The first box I opened was from my best friend Jordan and her mother Marcia.
Your support and love was truly felt. I miss you both greatly.
The next box was a surprise box from a fan named Dallas. Someone that I have never met, someone that I do not know. someone who had heard about me from REI where I used to work.
I don’t know if I can articulate my feelings when I opened this box and read the card you sent Dallas. But my heart was overflowing with joy. I had tears in my eyes reading your card. It was so unexpected but it means alot to know there are people out there who are rooting me on even if they haven’t met me.
A sincere. From the bottom of my heart thank you.
I look forward to meeting up with you when I finish my hike. 🙂
I spent a while laying on the Cookie Lady’s lawn chair and enjoyed the sunshine and feeling magically blessed.
Woodpile likes to catch frogs and put them in his pocket….and scare me.
Colby Jack stayed there too. We all arrived and he showed us around his house and yard and offered a free soda.
Backyard camping…I was pumped. 🙂
I followed these instructions and was not let down.
So when we finally got back he went inside to get us ice cream. We thought it would just be a couple scoops but instead he made a whole sundae in some fancy bowls.
What a day. What an absolutely blessed day. I am a lucky woman.
