We slept in until 7, took a decadent morning shower, and then headed into town for breakfast. We ate at The Inner Eye, which looked kind of funky and cool, but turned out to be very expensive. The food was good, but we may have been better off going to the place with the cartoon moose out front.
Though the Town and Lake Inn had a fantastic lake, it did NOT have laundry facilities. So after breakfast, we walked down to the laundromat. Inside, we saw Dip and Sip and Newton, who were heading out in the afternoon. They had heard rumors that many of the water sources had dried up and were going to start carrying 3 1/2 liters of water. I was unconvinced. "It's Maine!" I said. "Water is everywhere!" But hey, you have to hike your own hike.
While our clothes were in the drier, we went to the grocery store to resupply. Like the Inner Eye, we found the IGA to be quite pricey. Probably spent twice as much as usual. But hey, you gotta do what you gotta do.
After all the chores were completed, we spent the afternoon in the library, at the post office, lounging in the room watching TV, going back for another ice cream. It rained off and on all afternoon, going from full-fledged downpour to nothing. I was happy to not be hiking! We went to the outfitter to arrange for a shuttle back to the trail the next morning, opted for barbecue again for dinner, and watched Iron Man before bed. Excellent zero day!
