A Couple of Hours or All Day
Back in late March I added a couple of days onto a trip to the west coast and rented a car to explore the coast. I kept asking people about travel along the coast, things like how long will it take to drive from San Francisco to Pebble Beach. I kept getting answers about the fastest way, 90 minutes by expressway if the traffic is moving (it is about 100 miles.) I kept trying to explain that I wanted to take the slow road along the coast, I just wanted to be sure that I would have plenty of time for a leisurely drive. I found no one who had taken all day, to drive what can be done in a couple of hours or less. I did, stopping along the way every time I wanted to. I am so glad I did, I saw so much.
We rush through life, taking the most efficient route, because we can. Sometimes we need to take the least efficient route, because we can.
When was the last time you took the slow route? (If you can't remember, it has been too long.)
