Day 73: Wednesday, 12th September. Destination: Dayville Presbyterian Church, Dayville, Oregon
Sometime in the afternoon two kids and their mum popped in to use the church's shower, and we chatted about piano playing (there was a piano in the hall) and the location of Scotland. I met them later in the evening after dinner (It was all-you-can-eat burrito & taco night at the diner). The kids were kicking a ball around outside the gas station opposite the diner and asked me to join, but I was feeling a bit tired so talked to their mum instead. The talk was of some truck that had overturned a little further along the road. We all walked back towards the church in the dusk as the kids called out to their friends. I slept on the floor of the church dais, which was kind of weird but recommended because it was carpeted and wasn't on solid ground (hence just a bit more comfortable and warm). Strange to be there on my own, and a shame to have missed out on the company of Jon, Don & Mike who stayed here last night.
