I slept soundly last night and woke up at 4:30 a.m. feeling reasonably refreshed.
The Clarion Inn has a passable free breakfast built around scrambled eggs and hash browns.
The breakfast room was full of old (older than me) and infirm people, which struck me as odd until I heard the PA system announcing a shuttle bus to the Mayo Clinic. Oh, yeah. Rochester. Mayo’s.
I’m taking my time about packing and loading, since I want to avoid as much of the Minneapolis-St. Paul morning rush hour traffic as possible.
It’s only a 90-minute-or-so ride, so it should be a pleasant morning jaunt.
