I slept, partially hidden in some shallow dunes, by the beach near Wanna Wanna. They were closed by the time I got back there, a good thing because I'm down to $40 for the rest of the week and I really don't want to dip into my credit again. Woke up about 4:30 local time and walked till I came to a 24-hour Whataburger, and am drinking some coffee to offset the beers I had earlier.

Actually, I woke up more than once; at one point I heard people yelling something like "he's in the hole!" and fully expected cops to be rousting me in a couple of minutes. But after a half hour passed and nothing happened, I must have drifted off back to sleep again. In fact, I don't think I've seen a cop yet here in SPI. Hope it stays that way.

By the way, there's both a "linksys" and "default" SSID reachable from the front of the Whataburger. My computer glommed onto the Linksys, I don't think the "default" router's DHCP is working.
