Ascent Trip ReportDay #104 -- Maria McCabe
Breakfast at Mountain Side Cafe on us#7, Housatonic river.
14:15 hrs - Arrived Salisbury, tomorrow I'll take a zero day. Went to Maria McCabe's B&B - beautifull 78 yr old, twice married, talkative, loves to tell stories - a very helpfull/gratefull hostess. She drove me to my usual errands (groceries, atm, fuel, laundry, post office). Gave me a cucumber salad from her garden, apple pie & coffee, couldn't do enough for you.
Tomorrow I'll take her to dinner when at the laundry. Her son , who has a garden maintenace business, stopped in to play cards with his mom.
Maria invited me to comeback with Rose for a free stay, a really nice person and a great B&B, she likes hikers.
