Today is day two on the antibiotic and tomorrow I need to get back on the trail. I have laying around all day with my foot elevated watching my 10 inch TV (see below). I have taken some time to journal and reflect but I am ready to put the new pack on my back and attack the rocks of PA.
I went to breakfast this morning at a family restaurant about 3/4 mile down the road. After ordering my blueberry pancakes, I asked the young waitress if she knew about the boat in the Port Clinton town sign. She got a puzzled look on her face which indicated the lack of any explanation. However, a couple at a nearby table confirmed the canal boat origins. On my walk home I passed by a local museum (which was closed) and what did I see in the window but a canal boat (I had to get a photo of the building and the boat). I still think the town sign looks like Noah’s Ark but I at least understand the sign.
I have met some nice people during my stay here. I may have met close to 10% of the town’s population. After the hike, I might return and run for mayor – on second thought….
