We started this day with breakfast at a little place we found last night--they are open 24 hours a day and have a breakfast special from 6:30 until 9 AM. It still seems strange to me to see people drinking beer at 7 AM, but the man sitting next to us was doing just that. He was on day 3 of a bender, drinking and playing, and not sleeping at all. I guess it takes all kinds. After breakfast we returned to our hotel, Dianne did the laundry while I did the blog, and then we checked out and stowed our bikes and luggage in the storeroom.
