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.
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)
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!
