Second Day after sleeping next to Church outside Chinatown

Fun day today. I saw some sights that were recommended by Ian at the 66 store on the SM Pier. I saw Chicken Boy and had a cherry ricky at the fountain store.

Small world story. As I was talking to Ian on Wednesday on the Pier, an English couple walked up and stated they just finished driving Route 66. Ian told them I was walking it starting tomorrow. Guess who I saw getting on the train in South Pasadena. I walked up to them and said we met the other day. They took pictures and went on with their day.

I have recently retired after 30 years in law enforcement and a few years in the private sector. I have always enjoyed walking form place to place.  One of my favorite assignments was working overtime in our tourist area.  It was a blast to walk around for about 7 hours throughout the Downtown area.

In 2016, I read a book, "Wild at Heart" by John Eldredge.  In November of 2016, I decided to do my "walkabout" with God from Santa Cruz to Los Angeles.  I had a blast walking along the Pacific Coast.  It was a beautiful experience.  I learned so many things on this walk.  The main lesson was God was talking to me, I just was not listening.  He was there with me on my walk, I just was not realizing the signs.

I have always been intrigued about walking the PCT, AFT, the Continental Divide and Appalachian Trial.  The one trip that stuck out with me was walking across the United States.
