I woke with a start this morning, afraid that I’d slept in until 11am. Is if. It was only 6:45. What I would give to actually sleep in one of these days.
We spent the morning hunkered down in our motel room — loading blog posts, sorting through our gear in preparation for sending a box of extra gear home, and figuring out our plans for the upcoming eclipse (we’re planning to return to Oregon to meet Michael’s parents). Basically, we didn’t leave until check out time at noon, and even then we ended up needing some extra time in our room to sort things out. Where does town time go?
