Rained last night. A gentle steady rain. I was warm and dry in my tent and did, indeed, sleep in. Finally bailed out of my tent and into the shelter around 7:30. Plodder was gone but Bed and Breakfast were still in their bags. Made breakfast and began a running conversation with B&B about hiking and many other subjects. They shared their coffee and cinnamon rolls with me. In return, I offered to take out their trash. Managed to get my tent reasonably dry in the shelter. B&B were in no hurry to walk out in the rain which continued off and on throughout the morning. They were still at the shelter when I left around 1:00, although the rain had abated. The woods were a wet green as the trail clambers over some rocky outcrops. The low light muted the forest color.
Met thru-hiker Snow Dog heading north from the Doyle. Reached PA 225 around 2:30. No sign of Bev and Norma in the parking area so I walked on to the pedestrian bridge that carries the AT over the highway only to see them drive under me. They quickly returned and we had a joyous reunion.
