Barnstable to Sandwich

Walking in Sandwich (photo taken by Skip Schiel)

Yesterday was a tough day. For some reason, there was no joy in the walk. I've usually enjoyed carrying the banner at the front of the walk, and smiling and waving at passersby. But I just couldn't get enthused about it yesterday. I didn't even want to make eye contact with passing cars. After a while, I gave up the banner to Louise. We made it to the East Sandwich Friends Meeting House for lunch, which was also our dinner gathering spot. My blisters were already hurting. I was tired. Sometimes, taking care of the world means that I need to take care of myself. So I took the afternoon off from the walk, went with Alissa's aunt to our home stay, got a hot shower and took a nap. In the evening, after the potluck and gathering, I went to bed early and slept until morning, hoping that my feet wouldn't hurt so much during today's walk.
