Kathy & I made one of those “essential errands” today with a jaunt to one of our favorite destinations on the other side of the SC border. Yes, it was a liquor store. 😉
On the way there we took I-485, which circumnavigates the city of Charlotte and is the most efficient way to our destination. On our return, we made an intentional “wrong turn” and took the rest of the loop which results in about a 65-mile journey. But what else is there to do? 🙂
Along the way, we were excited to see the green popping in the trees, white and pink Dogwood in their spring splendour, and relatively empty roads. A reminder that, for Mother Nature, life goes on with or without all the pandemonium that we mere mortals are dealing with.
To top it off, I used “Fuelpoints” from our local grocery store and filled up the gas tank for $.80 a gallon!
