Last Mile and Victory Swim!

Words are hard to describe the feelings Jesse has at the end of this trip. He is going to write about it in a day or two. Right now, here’s what the last mile and the victory swim looked like at Neptune Beach in Jacksonville, Florida. It was a joyful moment, and as Jesse said, “God gets all the glory!”

By the way, we met the nicest lady named Julie. She and her husband were biking, saw us walking (and the sign on Jesse’s backpack) and cheered him on the final dash to the beach. I believe she’s actually in the video–the lady on the bike.

    Well done Jesse. Quite a task to undertake and quite a story for the generations of VanOsdols to come. Are you ready to begin your next adventure…in the job you trained for? Or are we going the have to watch the return trip to California? We are proud and happy that you fulfilled your quest.
