Devyn's hospitality. Locals at Breakfast.

11 June 2012

After a tougher than planned day, decided to stop for some water at Devyn’s Deli & Creemee Stand in Sheldon, VT.  Hard to see from the water, the workers at the Hydro station had mentioned where to find it.  Owner Amy was working there, and mentioned that another thru-paddler had stayed there and invited me to do the same.  Turns out it was Cathy Mumford.  Ordered a grinder (Sub Sandwich) and a Creemee (Ice Cream), and decided to stay and camp in their back yard by the river.  Took a walk down the nearby Rail Trail and watched some Little League baseball.  Starting to feel tired these days, time for a break to let the body rebuild.

Early the following morning, went in when Devyn's opened at 6:30, ate breakfast and talked with the local crowd.  It is a nice way to share some stories, meet some people and to better understand the local scene.
