DAY 2 - ACCOMPLISHED!
LOCATION UPDATE: We traveled from Santa Monica to Malibu today (Wednesday) and we'll be leaving from Las Flores and PCH in Malibu tomorrow morning around 9am.
We are well rested because of our fantastic hosts - here we are with our dear friend Deb on night one!
Today was fantastic!! Because of one thing.... all of you. And we mean this very sincerely. Here are a few of our experiences with you: Perk, the gorgeous lifeguard/actor/model/all around nice guy (they really do exist!) Deborah - who pulled over to ask if we needed water (she heard us on the Stephanie Miller Show!), and then she offered her home if we needed a break! Then there's Craig who graciously picked us up when Tracie's blisters prevented her from going any further, and he dropped us off at our lodging location for the night. And Craig's mom, Gera, who sent Craig back over with Mole Skin that she insists will help the blisters - this Mole Skin has traveled the world with her... good karma! Those of you who added comments to our blog - wow, we were both teary eyed reading those comments. We really do all effect each another. Then there was Matt who is so determined to join us and march, he's trying to take his final exams early! And our brother-in-law, Joe, came to the rescue and helped us fix something on our website!
You are all so inspiring. We regret we can't write every story of every one we're touched by... but know that it's truly amazing.
Tracie's blisters have caused us to move a little slower than we would have liked, but nonetheless, we've still traveled about 20 miles and about 50,000 steps! And on about mile 18, we learned that the California Supreme Court agreed to hear cases regarding Prop 8!!! Great News!
Tomorrow we'll be traveling up the Pacific Coast Highway. From our experience today, we may reach areas that begin to get unpassable... and as we leave Malibu's city limits, we'll not have any other cities to go through until a little farther up PCH in Oxnard. So, depending on the safety of the road (we've been advised not to walk on this next portion - but we want to at least try) - we'll be in Oxnard in the next couple of days.
Keep fighting the fight!
