Huntington Beach to Corona Del Mar

Saturday’s walk was one of sweet fellowship with my sister in Christ, Ingrid – it was very windy, and the aftermath of Friday’s storm was evident in the ‘sand dunes’ along the beach paths. They were mildly annoying for us, but the cyclists were having a really rough time of it. Again, I was thankful…

Long Beach to Huntington Beach

I took advantage of the good weather to get a day ahead. I drove to my end point at Huntington State Beach just south of the pier, intending to catch Bus #1 back to my start point – but the morning traffic was tough, so I was a little nervous about my timing. The bus…

Wilmington to Long Beach

Actually, I finished on the extreme south end of Long Beach, just a half mile from the Orange County line! In addition to Ingrid and Randall from yesterday, I added two new Sole Mates – Cecilia and Bruce, also from our church.

Redondo Beach to Wilmington

Playa del Rey to Redondo Beach

This was Day 2 of our Hope Chapel walk – it’s hard to say which day was best, because they were both full of God’s beauty and His beautiful family.  We had almost 100 people over the 2 days who either walked, provided logistical support, or documented the event. Thank you ALL so much –…

Santa Monica to Playa del Rey

Once again, hours of work was lost on today’s blog entry! When will I learn to do the text in Word??? It’s almost 11 p.m., and on one of the most significant days I’ve had on this trek, it’s all gone – right after ‘Saved 10 seconds ago’ and right before ‘Publish’, it’s gone. Poof! Thank…

Malibu to Santa Monica

My son Matt walked with me again today – Part 2 of his Christmas gift! He wanted to fit it into a workday, so early was better. I picked him up at 5:30 a.m. (1-1/2 hours before sunrise) and we drove to Will Rogers State Beach, our end point for the day. Spotlights This Week:…
