Daily WordPress Challenge: Beneath your feet

Not the loveliest bare feet but when you are at the shore of a body of water like an ocean, you can’t help but kick off your shoes and enjoy the water. Chesapeake Bay, Virginia Beach.

At Carmel. There’s something that draws me to that quaint little town that one day, while my friend was at work, I decided to take the bus and spent a lovely day there. The alternative was to stay home and read. I was glad to summon my adventurous spirit and took the plunge of exploring by public transportation.

In the end I met and talked with some lovely people and discovered that kindness in humanity still exists. I found that out while waiting for my return bus to Monterey. I needed a dime for my fare. The bus required exact change. An old man was seated next to me in the shed. We were engaged in small talks when he saw me counting my change and upon knowing my predicament, he gave me the dime. A dime could mean a lot when that is all you need to secure a ride. And he looked like he hardly had more than that but kind eyes and yet he didn’t hesitate to help me.

    Thank you! When we mostly hear bad things done by other people to others, small acts of kindness resonate that humanity is still present even among those which we think has less to give.

    Thank you Amy! In taking public buses, we get to meet interesting people. There was this lady who was in the same bus going back and forth to Monterey and she told me that she was from SoCal but goes there every year and everytime she visits a resale shop in Carmel. She came back with vintage picture frames and placemats. She also suggested some great places to eat in Monterey which confirmed what my friend knew.

    It does give you a different perspective as opposed to being in a tour all the time. You don’t get to meet the public.
