Since we had two vehicles, and could park one at the starting point and one at a break-point, I was able to walk today most of the distance. Barney Musselman took this opportunity to be photographer/videographer and to get pictures of Pastor and I walking together. Most of his work was video, so please watch the video when it is posted.

When the time came that Barney had to return to Long Beach, we took a break. He left Pastor with some gifts – including a cap, some delicious oranges, a cross, natural soap, toothpaste, and shampoo.

Thank you, Barney, for joining us and sharing part of this last day with us!
