Spotlights This Week: Always: Hope Chapel Missions Church Spotlight: Church on the Rock – Florence, OR Charity Spotlight: Desire Street Ministries I’m spending a few days in the Atlanta area with our oldest son and his family – we return home Tuesday, then I’ll hit the road again on Wednesday to resume walking in Santa Barbara. Here are…

Santa Barbara to Montecito

Actually, I did this segment on Tuesday and it was fun – one of those amazing, scenic, interesting days that make the mundane and/or challenging days worthwhile. The beaches and architecture of Santa Barbara with its backdrop of palm trees and mountains is quintessential California!

San Marcos Pass to Santa Barbara

Well now, that was intense. For my final 10 miles in San Marcos Pass there was no construction zone to help me out – so I had to deal with traffic on traffic’s terms! It was so heavy and fast that I couldn’t let my guard down for even a second! Spotlights This Week: Always: Hope Chapel…

Buellton to Santa Ynez +5

Wow, my car was iced over this morning! After I defrosted, I forgot to check the outside temps, but a half hour later I noticed it was 32 – it might have been even colder when I left Lompoc.

Lompoc to Buellton

This was one of the more physically challenging days I’ve had yet. It was definitely a Soles 4 Hope ‘Triathlon’ day: Drive – Walk – Bike. However, the scenery was lovely and the weather & temps were glorious!
