Did you all have a nice Valentine’s Day? Ours was…interesting. Sometimes I think God/the universe/whatever you believe, waits for we humans to have a great notion (Sunset picnic! Flowers! The theatah!) just so it can smite us, tiny powerless beings that we ultimately are.
Smiting? Is that still a thing? Are people smiting? Is it in any way related to smithing?
This is all a very dramatic way of saying that my Valentine’s day flowers never showed up (harrumph, Teleflora!), the weather was fuh-reeeezing and the grass was wet, and the play we saw was completely mediocre.
However. However. Because humans, powerless though we are, are also inherently optimists, I am very pleased to tell you that we did find something awesome that basically makes up for everything else: a secret picnic spot!
Deep in the Yerba Buena Gardens, at the back of the field, is a beautiful waterfall:
Behind it, you’ll find a little stone walkway, with a little corner tucked away, perfect for a picnic!
If wet grass, cold weather, bad plays, or a general lack of things going right happens to you, get some cheese, some wine, some friends, and get thee to this sweet little spot. Poof. Romance, restored. You won’t be smote, but you just might be smitten.
