a long, lovely journey.

I walked and rode muni for three hours because of a few "accidents".  But surprisingly, the whole adventure was humorous and soothing.

1. I lost my transit card when I was sailing in the Bay 2. I went to get lunch at a nearby restaurant.  Left my phone on the bar. 3. Went to a restroom and exited the back way to see the water (I probably wouldn't have left my phone if I left the restaurant the way I entered) 4. Walked a quarter mile (because I lost my transit card) towards 4th and Market before I realized I had left my phone. 5. Went to a hotel where I called the restaurant. They had my phone! 6. Took Muni from Powell to Brannan and knew the T would take me to the restaurant and suspected the N would also, but I wasn't sure.  Three N trains passed before a T came.  And sure enough, the N went to the restaurant as well. 7. Ran into the restaurant and they couldn't find my phone. They finally gave me my phone 8. Ran after the train and missed it, then realized there were two more right behind it. 9. Got off at Powell and walked to get onto the 38 which I nearly missed. 10. According to my directions, all I had to do was get off at 11th 11. Too bad I typed in 11th street instead of 11th avenue.  I went all the way to the Sunset when I should have been in SOMA.  I walked up to somebody's home and realized I was in the wrong place. 12. Waited at the bus stop and knew the 38 would take me where I needed to go and suspect I should take the 38 express, but wasn't sure.  So I let two express buses pass me. 13. Rode 38 back to downtown and missed my stop. I was enjoying the scenery. 14.  Got on the right bus and finally made it to my destination an hour late!

It was a GREAT day.  And I really mean that.
