We walked the last mile.
Some 22 years ago, when dh and I were at the tender ages of 50 and 53 years old, we supported a group of people who wanted to build a trail from the SF bay to the ocean. We hoped we could walk the trail when it was done.
We donated money, walked the 5k walks, bought tee shirts etc. What we did was small stuff comparing to what other people have done to make it happen. Well, we have not made it to the ocean yet, but on Saturday we went to the latest phase of the trail within our city and we walked the whole way. And we are proud of that.
Younger peope are taking over the support for this trail to the ocean, and from what I saw, I'm confident that the trail will reach the ocean.
