mystery trip!

When we were kids, every once in awhile, my Dad and Eva would announce that we were going on a mystery trip. They'd tell us either that we didn't need anything, or that we needed our bathing suits, or whatever, but they wouldn't tell us anything else. I remember feeling sooooo excited and curious and happy. I hardly remember where we'd go or what we'd do--it was the suspenseful happy feeling that I remember.

I haven't thought of those mystery trips in a long time--until today. Leo picked me up from my last job this afternoon. He was kind of antsy, asking me to hurry up. I finished up what I had to do and got in the car. We drove along and he wouldn't tell me where we were going. Somewhere in Wellfleet but I couldn't figure it out. I was filled with that familiar excited curiosity from years ago--a mystery trip :)

He drove me to an amazing view of a most glorious sunset over the bay. Filled me up inside. Big time.
I think Pops is nodding his head in cosmic approval of Leo's gift to me this evening.
