Impromptu Trash Patrol

Sunday was sunny and blustery, and it was also Free Admission Day at the Exploratorium, so we took our bikes on the BART and rode over to Pier 15. While we waited in the admission line, the wind blew apart a discarded newspaper, and the pieces went skittering all over the place, headed for the water. Althea darted out and started chasing them down. Every time we wrestled a batch into the recycling bin, more appeared. Then other kids started following her lead. Before long, every kid in sight was running after paper, catching some just before they sailed into the Bay, and adults were stomping down on the pages to help out.

Not one word was exchanged among the participants in this impromptu collaboration, just a few smiles and high-fives at the recycling bin–but this was definitely my favorite moment of an altogether pretty fabulous day.mothers day ride 2015
