Monday:(05/07) I prepared a breakfast sausage, egg, and cheese sandwich before hitting the trail. I headed South from Spring Lake Park into Annadel State Park. Beautiful park. Excellent trails. Last year a fire burnt 60% of the park. You could hardly tell it had burnt with the lush free grasses, flowers, and sprouts. Above 15 feet a green canopy, no ash. No scorched earth look. In fact, a March burned and now looks better that before the fire. My hike was 16.1 miles. Lou and Dawn relaxed in camp all day. For dinner, we drove over to Occidental for dinner at Negri’s.
Tuesday: (05/08) Lou’s baked omelet for breakfast. We made a route visiting thrift stores today. Also a little shopping. Lunch downtown At 2 Tread Brew Pub. After lunch, we dropped Dawn off at the Charles Schultz Museum. Lou and I took a drive through the fire burn areas. Over 5000 homes burned in the County last October. Lou made chopped salads for dinner.
