DAY 4 - MALIBU TO OXNARD
This is what our walk looked like most of the day... beautiful! The sign is misleading...we walked a few more than 3 miles - more like 10.
LOCATION UPDATE: Saturday we had planned to march through Oxnard and Ventura, however, we are taking a day of rest to heal Tracie's blisters. (as hard as she tries to prevent them, they keep coming back!) We will be attending a rally at a local health food store that gave money to the yes on 8 campaign - Lassens Health Foods at 4071 E. Main in Ventura - Hope to see you there!
Back to day 4! The walk was beutiful, but a little painful for Tracie - still fighting with blisters. (warning: there is a picture below of the blisters, viewer discretion advised) We had mostly traffic again today, and not a lot of honking or feedback. We did meet a few wonderful people. Marshall rode his bike up to us and asked about what we're doing. We talked for a minute and then he rode off. An hour or two later, Marshall rode up again after having enjoyed his hambuger at Neptune's Net and pulled 2 beers out of his pocket for us! We sat right down at the beach and enjoyed them - thanks Marshall!!
Then we ran across a couple from Newbury Park, who were camping along the PCH. Dawn and Robert crossed barriers to sign the petition!
Here are our lovely hostesses for night 4 - Terri and Toni - in their gorgeous backyard. They fixed Tracie a nice epsom salt bath for her feet, fed us a wonderful Thai meal, and graciously gave us their wonderful vibrating bed that rocked us to sleep in record time. Their dog, Tuli, will have a comment segment on our Supreme Court video.
And here is a picture of ONE of Tracie's blisters! Both pinky toes are JUST blisters now, and both main foot pads are very blistered. We hope to treat and rest these on Saturday and start off on our trek again Sunday.
