I Drove to Bay City Today

It was such a beautiful day and I needed to get out of the house. I took a leisure drive to Bay City, where I lived for ten years. While I was driving, my cell phone rang and it was my daughter. She was worried about me, taking a long drive all by myself. It's not like me to do this. I stopped at Tim Horton's coffee shop for a small coffee. Then, sat in my car in the Kroger's parking lot, enjoying this nice day and my hot drink. After a little while, I pulled onto Euclid Avenue and headed towards home. My daughter called again to make sure I was safe at home. She's a champ! Photo:Mine

Sometimes it's nice to just get out and drive somewhere. It makes having to stay home a little bit easier.

I need alone time, I'm a very private person. I don't do well with a lot of noise or confusion.

Feeling the same way. Thinking of getting the bike out, but it is too muddy for my favourite route, so it will have to wait a day or three

We still have a foot of snow on the ground. A bike would be cold and dangerous transportation.

@kobesbuddy there are lots of videos of people cycling in the snow on the continent. Not sure if I'd try it over here!

It's good to do something unusal and abnormal with your life sometimes. Spice things up and what not. At least you're home safe and sound now.

@kobesbuddy That may be, but you're allowed to try something different once in a while. We all should.
