On Monday, I'll cross into Ohio! I'm thrilled to be getting to a new state. I look forward to the new challenges Ohio has in store for me. Even more exciting is the warming weather. I'll get to see spring bloom across Ohio. Also excited to be sending back some winter clothes, this will lighten up my pack a bit. Soon it's sky's out thighs out.
This morning was nice, I went to the restaurant in the hotel for Sunday brunch buffet. All you can eat oysters, yes please! I went up to the buffet four times. A man at the table next to me, was celebrating his 90th birthday. He turned to me and asked: "what mountain did you come climbing off of?" I told him about my hike and he was impressed. He gave me his card, he is a Bahái. He was telling me about how he knew the original owner of the hotel. This is a registered historic hotel. I wished him a happy birthday on my way out.
I went upstairs and hand washed all my clothes. There is no laundromat nearby and it would have costs $15 for the hotel to wash them. They've been drying all day, hopefully they'll be fully dry by morning.
Brown and I went for a walk to grab some sandwiches. We strolled through a historic neighborhood with awesome old homes. On the way back we watched the sunset over the Parkersburg-Belpre bridge. A nice zero day.
I forgot to mention in the last post but Brown's backpack broke. So I've got to tie the straps together somehow. Had to buy a new one but won't have it until I pick up my mail in Chesterhill. I also have to run into the grocery store on my way out of town to pick up food for him.
Thank you readers.
