Yay, we got to sleep in today! Best feeling in the world. At 8 am we go down to the breakfast place and eat as much as we can from the delicious breakfast buffet. It is amazing to have so much food variety! Eggs, sausages, waffles, fruit, joghurt, muesli, fresh coffee and orange juice. Yummy! It definitely is all about food when we are in town!
Soon after breakfast we order a Lyft car and drive to the savemart to resupply. It takes us the usual hour to get all the stuff we need. Our Lyft driver Belinda who drove us there told us to call her again when we were ready for our ride back to the hotel and that she would turn the Lyft app back on as there are not many drivers around. She had never heard of the PCT, but wondered about all these hikers in town every spring. She was like "how do you manage to do this on your own?", and I told her among other things that we would get help from so-called trail angels who do all kinds of stuff for us out of the goodness of their hearts. So when we call her she tells us that there is no need for us to order her through the app, that she will just give us a ride for free because she wants to be a trail angel for us. How kind are the people here, it just blows my mind!
We spend the afternoon blogging, napping, chilling in the pool and hot tub area, watch Friends in our hotel room and rest our feet and legs as much as possible. In the evening we make our way to the Redhouse BBQ Restaurant where supposedly all the locals hang out and order some fantastic Tacos Al Pastor and much more. The entire dinner costs us 29$ and is delicious! Hiker midnight is now approaching fast, we are already so tired, time for bed, and another sleep in tomorrow! I love double zeroes!
