As I opted for an alternative route on Father’s Day afternoon, I visualized my ride as I prepared to leave the celebration. I moved my camera into the passenger’s seat just in case.
I would be riding up the mountain with amazing views of the valley and the day was perfect: late afternoon sunshine, clear sky and as I arrived at the designated scenic spot for stopping, I joined a few parked cars. In one a young woman who looked familiar and seemed to recognize me.
Lucia, at the very end of her 30th high school class reuion was stopping as I was, for moment to take in the view. Thrilled to connect after 30? years, I grabbed this photo to capture the moment.
I may have turned down cake on Father’s Day. Here’s my dessert!
