PCT Day 43 – A Discouraging Day

Last Updated on March 25, 2020

I didn’t have a great day today. Nothing especially bad happened, I just felt tired and my foot hurt more than usual and I was grumpy and felt discouraged.  I’ll elaborate more tomorrow.

Here are some pictures from today.

These Flowers are Cool
This bench is cool
This Signpost made out of a shovel is cool
