Short Day in Del Mar

February 2nd, 2012

2-2-12I started the day at the Encinitas Elks Lodge 2243, the Best People On Earth let me overnight in The Kindness Bus, making for a very restful night in a quiet neighborhood. I set out for an early morning ride in Del Mar, California.
Getting great interest from the moment I put The Kindness Bicycle on the ground in Del Mar and at the urging of a couple of local residents, I called the local newspaper, The Del Mar Times. Claire, the editor of the paper came out to interview me and take some photos for the upcoming edition. I gave her enough information to fill an entire section if she wishes. What a very professional interview, with very good questions to help me tell my story.
I met Danny from the Army 82nd Airborne, who has been home from Iraq for a few weeks. He had many kind comments about The Kindness Bicycle Ride for Heroes.
Captain Patrick O’Neil from the Del Mar Fire Department met with me as well. He has many nieces and nephews and loves the idea of kids learning about the real role models in today’s society. He was very excited about The Kindness Bicycle Ride for Heroes.
With the level of interest the residents of this town had for The Kindness Bus Tour, I am making a point to stop in this town as I head north early next week.
This afternoon, I visited Marine Corporal Michael Fox. I will write about this Hero tomorrow.
