Visalia to Mariposa : 11 August 2001

Drove to Oakhurst, but there was no room at the inns. Well, there was one room, but it was $119! In a slight panic we drove to Mariposa, which was a really sweet little town in the Sierra Forest. The first motel we found said $75 (including tax) so we took it. It turned out to be a suite – bedroom, lounge, bathroom – and bigger than our flat. Really lovely. We asked if we could stay another night, but they’re fully booked.

Went to a restaurant for dinner, then watched Fight Club with a bottle of wine and a bag of Hershey’s Kisses.

{I don’t know what happened to the 10th. I tried to work it out, but just got confused, so I’m just going to go along with the dates in the notebook…}
