On a magic carpet ride!

By pure magic we left our house at 1:30 pm, went to the deYoung museum in San Francisco and returned home at 4:45 pm.  It was as if we were transported by a magic carpet ride the drive so effortless.

On Wednesday, August 16th, I thought to check the dates of the Summer of Love exhibit at the DeYoung Museum in San Francisco.

Looking at our schedule, therapy, caregivers, and just energy level I couldn’t quite see how we’d work it in before the weekend.   But, I was determined to go to the exhibit and NOT go on the weekend.   That left only Thursday afternoon as Lizzie was busy in the morning.  The longer I thought about it the more I thought, be flexible, San Francisco doesn’t have to be an all day trip.

So, I figured that leaving the house at 1:30 pm on a Thursday we could avoid all traffic.  Further, if we left San Francisco around 4 we could just miss commuter traffic going home.  It’s a scant one hour trip without traffic, 40.3 miles to the city.  With traffic I won’t even comment about how long it would take.

We left on time and imagine there was no traffic!  Round trip, all in,  3 hours and 15 minutes.

What a paradigm shift!  Now instead of thinking of a trip to San Francisco as an all day exhausting trip we can be flexible, adjust our window, ride the magic carpet, and still have an awesome experience.
