Our journey took us

From fine wine in San Francisco

To a bucket of beers at an

Off-the-beaten path

Diner with a lakefront view.

We laughed and marveled

At the range of our experiences

Within 24 hours but we wouldn’t

Have it any other way.

We found a table of four with

Fun-loving retirees who made us smile.

We returned the favor

With a round of drinks

We paid forward without their knowledge

While they enjoyed the most

Fabulous burgers in the state.

We wished them well

On our way back to our car

Feeling on top of the world.
