AN ECLECTIC VILLAGE LOCAL EDITION
A WALK FOR HEART HEALTH
Linda Walker, Victoria Whelchel, Lana Cochrun, Maryann Grau
They called it a "challenge walk." It was a challenge they met, easily and with purpose.
The four Cambria women are part of a group of friends who meet for a walk and then coffee twice a week. They began to discuss a walk from from Cambria to San Simeon during lunch last Friday. Today, they set off from Leffingwell Landing on the north end of Moonstone Beach at 9:00 AM. Their friends who gathered at Lilly's Coffee deck speculated as to how the walkers were doing on their almost 7 mile journey.
They followed the famous Highway 1, the Pacific Coast Highway. The temperature started in the 50's and warmed into the low 60's as they made the 6.8 mile walk.

The women opted to wear red, to signify Women's Heart Health Day. Nature also provided color and beauty.
As their coffee drinking pals speculated about when they would arrive in San Simeon,
Linda, Victoria, Maryann and Lana made rapid progress.
The foursome arrived at the Sebastien Store at 10:55, even before Abby had opened the deck for lunch.
Yvonne and Mark Kantor, who joined the trek along the route, and Jim Bergren joined us for lunch. We were soon joined by more of our Cambria "Friday lunch flash mob" for our usual palaver and good cheer.
As the walkers were driven home, south along the coast, they commented, variously, on sore gluts, upper thighs or bottom of the feet, but were already discussing the next challenge walk. Another one that ends near a restaurant. Village life is good.
COMING TOMORROW TO THE WEEKENDER :)

See you down the trail.
