Transit Picnic


--by cabbage, posted Jan 16, 2022
Friends were transiting through San Francisco en route to India. They did not have a lot of time in between flights, so I drove to the airport with a picnic!

Even though it started to downpour when I pulled up to the curb, I drove them to a scenic spot by the bay. They enjoyed the hot chai and snacks/food that I brought from home while sitting in the car. And then magically the rain stopped, the sun came out briefly and we enjoyed a little walk by the bay, soaking in the views and the magnificent sky.

Even though we only got to spend a little over an hour together it was uplifting and so lovely since we hadn't seen each other since the pandemic began (they live in another state). I smiled all the way home.
