After a big breakfast like that, I needed some exercise, so I went for a walk around the neighborhood around the hotel. On the way back, I admired the nice view of Mount Shasta, clearly visible to the south. I figured I'd earned another soak in the hot tub, so I put on my swimsuit and headed to the pool, where unfortunately I found a large vat of Screaming Children Soup instead of a hot tub. I did ten lengths of the swimming pool (slowly) instead, which certainly got my blood flowing. The walking and swimming had the desired impact on my blood sugar, so even though I had one of their cinnamon rolls, I didn't feel guilty.
Now I need to finish packing and hit the road. Google Maps says the 380 miles from here to Fremont should be done in around 6 hours. Given how I drive, I expect it will be more than 9, but that's okay with me.
