Tuesday, March 23rd

Quite an overcast and cool day. It probably wouldn't have seemed so cold but the wind was quite brisk. The temp stayed in the mid 30s all day. Wouldn't surprise me to see some snowflakes tonight. After the daily Post Office stop, we decided to walk along the Coastal Trail. The mountain and inlet views are really awesome from this trail. We took the North Chester Creek Trail at the lagoon. This trail cut through a disc golf course. There were several intrepid players on the course despite the cold temps. In case you are not familiar with this sport, it is similar to golf except the object is to throw a frisbee into wire baskets on poles. We walked until we intersected A Street. Leaving the trail, we were once again on the sidewalks and heading back home.

After a brief stop in the room, we made a cigarette run for Greg. We had to walk to the Lucky Seven store on 4th Avenue. This place will remind you of those small old-style country grocery stores. You will smell like greasy fries and hamburgers when you leave. We stopped by the mall and got the Food Court's Tuesday night special, a corn dog for $1. What a bargain. They were hand battered and pretty good. We'll have to walk the entire Coastal Trail to work off those calories.
