Not Just Smart, Yummy Too

The car co-op has two Smart Cars, one a yellow hardtop, and the other a white convertible. I drove the convertible today.

The first thing I noticed was how much easier it is to put a convertible top down than it used to be; you used to have to stop the car and you (and your friends) had to wrestle with the top, but now you just push a button and it all happens serenely - not much different from opening an electric window - you don't even have to stop the car. I was impressed.

What a joy it is to be able to drive all the fun new cars, especially a cute little convertible in sunny weather. I enjoyed it so much that I'm considering taking it on a road trip, on the highways and byways, in the sun, to the desert, to the beach. Oh yes, I must do this thing. 

Today I decided I wanted to go to the beach for sunset, so got in the car and drove to Pat's place (my apartment before I moved to thisCastle), and called Pat from the parking lot. She was drawing a bath, but driving in the convertible and my company and the beach at sunset was a pretty good draw, so she postponed the bath, and we drove with the top down to Spanish Banks where we watched the sunset, the gorgeous sunset. When we arrived, the sun was still in the sky, but falling, so the light was long and golden. Glorious.

When we looked to the east we saw that there was a piece of rainbow high in the sky, in amongst the red clouds.

Driving the Smart convertible to Spanish Banks to watch the sunset and the rainbow with good company is the crush of the day.
