April 1 – day 6 — Zero Day in Julian

Today was a guilty pleasure!  I spent the day sitting on the porch of the historic boarding room I rented reading the “History of Julian” enjoying the morning and afternoon sun.

I minimized my walking by only venturing out for dinner to give my feet a rest.

Julian seems to be known for its pies.  People were lined up ten deep in front of Momma’s and the Julian Pie Store. I guess I should have indulged…  

IMHO, the best dinner place based on my micro survey is Romano’s Italian Restaurant.  I met two great couples there- one couple building their dream house and the other getting a weekend break from their six kids(!).  People here are so nice and great to chat with.
Tonight, I prepped for my early start tomorrow.  I packed lunch into the hip pockets of my packed, checked the PCT Water report 😊, topped off my Water bottles, and recharged my battery pack, my GPS unit and my phone.  I applied Leuko Tape to the hotspots on my feet (apologies if you find this unpleasant)

It was only in taking this picture tat I noticed I had another blister 😞.  More tape…

My goal is to get up early, shower, eat a quick breakfast and hitchhike down to the trailhead about 13 miles east of here.  Lets hope I have good at charms tomorrow!

Thanks for reading!
