Great rest at a nice shelter last night.
Today we only had a 10.7 mile hike to the road to Manchester. The hike started in a fine mist with some dense fog in places but before 11:00. AM the sun peeked through.
The hike itself was fairly easy. Not too many steep ups & downs. Rocks, roots and mud did prevail.
Upon arriving at the road to Manchester we began to hitch into town and almost immediately a fellow stopped with room for one so Buffalo Bobby took that ride and no sooner had he taken off than a BMW driven by a true trail angel, Bill, stopped, gave us cold drinks and drove us into town. We were at our destination before noon. Thanks Bill!
We're staying at Sutton's Place which is a beautiful private home with all the comforts of home. Our host, Frank, took very good care of us.
After getting cleaned up we walked into town to do laundry, have lunch, visit the outfitter (who was able to get my poles mostly fixed) and resupply.
Right now I'm in a terrific book store enjoying some quiet time and browsing before heading back to join the rest for dinner. It's nice spending some time just reading.
Tomorrow we start the last leg of our journey to Killington, VT where we'll be picked up for some R&R and slake packing out of Bristol. Can't wait!
Tonight it's pizza and then to bed.
