Day One Photos and Thoughts

20160916_060415

Day One! Twenty miles walked. Yay! Tired feet and tired bodies. We started at 5:30 am! No one is awake at 5:30. Got breakfast and the first of the day’s swag. Emotionally charged Opening Ceremony and we were off. The Sisterhood of the Pink walks through Seattle. Enjoy the photos.

After a lovely dinner, our beds call us. Highlights of the day include the walk across the I90 bridge, the emotional opening ceremony, all the people who came out to cheer for us and to offer us food and hugs, there were awesome dogs that gladly let us pet them, the police in their pink shirts. Lunch was Vicki’s favorite. She got a vegan salad. Yay! The low point was the hill in Redmond near Microsoft. We both agreed that it was a bitch of a hill. (Direct quote from Vicki) But we made it to camp, collected more goodies and now are heading for bed. I haven’t been to bed this early since I was a kid. We can’t watch the Mariners so we are going sleep. Day 2 is going to be rainy. Woo hoo!

  1. So happy to hear about your first day. Sounds like a great time. I am wondering if the event had a vegan option for Vicki or if you found it on your own. I guess you are out there dodging the raindrops today.
    Great pic of the Needle, Annette!

  2. Wow! Sounds amazing, good job! You’re a terrific writer, very descriptive. We are by your side, keep up the great work! Dad is talking about walking 20 miles during his army days. He’s proud of you!
