April 15th – Day 12
As could be expected after (for me) such a late night, it was an effort to get out of bed. All in all arising at 11 was a pretty brave thing on my behalf. Just feeling mighty tired but not hungover.
Again an overcast day with a nice breeze.
Time to eat. I tried out a new restaurant across from the market. St. Celia is a little upmarket for the area. Got myself a seat and ordered the Fried Chicken that comes with a mountain of mashed potato smothered in gravy and a big serve of cabbage. Very nice even if the service was very slow. If Kate and Wendy were here they would have struggled to eat this whole plate of food even if they were sharing.
Today is just going to be a rest day.
The only other thing I did was go out at 6 to have an Italian Sausage Pizza at the Louisiana Pizza Kitchen. The sky is looking threatening and wouldn’t you know it as soon as I was ready to walk back home the heavens opened up. Very heavy downpour for 30 or so minutes. I took shelter and waited out the rain. Been lucky as this is the first rain in the 12 days I have been here.
