It was only another 10 miles to Pensacola, and it was still early morning. I took my time.
I crossed into gulf breeze and watched people fishing on the pier. I stopped by a Publix and charged my phone a bit.
Come afternoon I went to Chick-Fil-A to upload journal entries. I had a chocolate shake that was really good! I haven’t been able to carry any groceries without the buggy, so I’ve had to eat in at places mostly. The staff was very nice and welcoming. I actually lost track of time hanging out there!
It was tough, but I made it just in time for the vigil Mass. I washed up and snapped a quick photo before Mass. It was a beautiful church!
After Mass I spoke with Deacon Bill and received permission to camp on the property. He also gave me some money. A few other parishioners did too. Wow!
I set up my hammock beneath a gazebo by the building. I fell asleep listening to dogs barking and airplanes taking off from the Pensacola International Airport.
