I found the cafe with ease, it being only about twenty minutes from the Campground. In just a few minutes, Naomi appeared. She looks much more real in person. We had a grand visit and a good lunch. I had the opportunity to learn about her life, so far. We have enough in common to make it interesting. We set up a plan to take a hike on Sunday. She is a lovely young woman and it’s a pleasure to finally meet and get to know her a bit.
I brought my laundry with me and coincidentally, there was a laundromat right next door
I got back to camp and the rain came in earnest. It didn’t last long, but did wet the dry ground a good bit. Lynnie called to check-in and we had a good visit. Since I had had a good lunch, I decided that a grapefruit would suffice as dinner. That plus an ice cream bar later did the trick and “took the wrinkle out”, as my dad used to say.
I slept better last night, since the rain had stopped, and awoke to the rising sun in a clear blue sky. It got a bit colder due to the clear skies, but the sight of the rising sun always warms my spirit. I’m sure that the several tenters here felt warm in a much more significant way.
I’ll write more this evening after my day outside in the “wilds” of Longmont.
The hike never came to pass. Too much going on in life, I reckon. I hung out around camp and caught some sun and a nap. It was a much nicer day, with temperatures in the eighties. It’s cloudy now, with cirrocumulus covering the sky. Looks a bit like rain.
I’ll head out in the morning after Lynnie makes her morning call. More tomorrow...
