Day 54 - Alpine Texas
My legs hurt for the first time in a long while so I chose to sit today,eat, and rest. Actually, if I am being truthful all I have done for 24hours is eat. Last night I treated myself to a meal at a real restaurantand very much enjoyed it. I then walked down the street and proceeded toorder a burger and fries from a sonic.
This morning I started my day with coffee; I then inhaled a jumbo cinnamonbun; Next up was a plate of eggs with toast and potatoes. I did not feelsatisfied so I then had four mini brownies, which really were small,honestly they were tiny.
So as not to bore you I won't even talk about the rest of the day becauseall of that was before 12:00 so I was just getting started. Needless to saythis busted my food budget but I have learned to listen to my body and whenif gets like this it is clearly and very loudly telling me to just get outof the way and EAT. So, with much happiness I ate and ate and ate, andthankfully as I sit here typing this I am actually full, which is a veryrare event for this adventure.
Oh yes, Alpine us a lovely little town with lots of Cowboys in the area. Itcould just be that they are here for the Cowboy Poetry and Music festival,but so.e how I don't think that is the only reason. From what I can tell itappears that Alpine has a rich history with western history and the AmericanCowboy.
A big thanks to another lovely host, Liz, who opened up her house to me,sight unseen. The folks of Texas have truly been wonderful to me making mytime here very enjoyable.
