our trip, day five

Posted in Main, outings at 11:34 pm by carrie

we crashed on scott and alicia’s couch for 4 hours,had our first meal in 24 hours then checked into our awesome hotel at duke university’s golf course. we got to wander around durham’s historical downtown and have coffee and eclairs at the mad hatter bakery. we returned our rental car (one-way rate) for a new one then got totally lost. turns out our gps unit is not updated with the area’s new roads, and there is construction everywhere. so a 1 hr trip took 3. with little sleep and a low tolerance for more time in the car, i sort of turned evil. but we just had room service and i’m in my jammies,so this monster is subdued, for now ;)

    wheww. After the last entry I was wishing it would get better for you

    What are the first words I read ? WE CrASHED ! and I sucked in my breath.

    So relieved to see COUCH following that statement.

    Coffee & Eclairs sounds dreamy….

    You Evil…trying to picture. You know, I can almost see it ! Laughing !

    Jammies and Room Service sound like a Good Balm tho.

    Safe Rest of Trip ! See you soon.
