What a special joy it was to rekindle the many special memories and spiritual lessons Maria and I had learned and shared on our walk from Spokane to Issaquah back in July, in spite of very different weather and temperature circumstances. Anne and I have so much for which to be grateful in the daughters and their families with which God has blessed us!
The walk along Orville Road past Lake Kapowsin and later Ohop Lake was initially fairly comfortable going and most passing oncoming traffic thoughtfully gave us a wide berth onto the other side of the road
As we neared Eatonville I had begun to feel some sharp and painful pressure building in my small toes and the thought of still attempting to walk as far as Elbe or even beyond Eatonville became less of an option. A shared decision was made to end the walk in Eatonville and preserve joints and toes by driving the full distance to Morton tomorrow morning. As eager as I am to see the good folks at Morton UMC and share with them in as healthy a state as possible, following a walk of the remaining 29 miles to Morton under current weather circumstances, I would have without hesitation (and hopefully with full understanding and support) opted for an hour long soak in a hot tub with Epsom Salts over an hour in a worship service.
