Day 57- Downtown Date

Day 57- Downtown Date

 

Friends,
We both enjoyed the comforts of the hotel room, including the free breakfast. I continued with the waterproofing process, but the sealer was taking a long time to dry.
We checked out right at 11 and the tent wasn't quite ready (we just crossed our fingers that it would be alright). Three miles to downtown, we got to see just what Franklin was all about. it was gorgeous. I hoped to pick up a new pair of chaco sandals, but unfortunately the store we had in mind had shipped out what was in stock to make room for winter clothes.
We stopped at one of the few restaurants that was open on labor day. 55 South had an extremely nice setup and an even nicer menu (with prices to match). We pretended not to look and ordered what looked good. The food was top notch; I had the jambalaya.
After lunch we saw a movie at the restored theater. The rereleased Casa Blanca and the vintage theater could have complemented the film any better.
Finally we hit the road, hoping to get far enough out of town to camp. We passed by an estate that was storing brooks and dunns tour bus and tour semi. Further down the houses got smaller and more dirty. This seemed to be an optimal place to set up camp. We had made it 12 miles, totalling 15 for the day. The spot was a good one, atop a hill on a peace of land that existed just inside a switch back of pavement.
To a great date with a great girl,
levi
