Waiting Outside

 


I had to take my car to the mechanic Monday afternoon and I had been dreading it all weekend because the place has a very tiny waiting room and with the surge in covid, I hate being inside public places.  So I decided that I'd wait outside and just take a walk down the street.  

I snapped a couple of iPhone photos on the way.

I found this questionable looking Ethiopian restaurant.  It was located on one end of a rather shabby looking strip center but there were actually three other tiny restaurants and a palm reader in the same center.  They seemed to be surviving the effects of the pandemic.

Next door to the repair shop is a tire shop.  They had these old tires out front as decoration.

Not much to show for my walk down the street but it was still better than waiting inside.

Yes I have the same feeling, avoiding crowds all the time. The photo through the wheel is very well done!

Smart move to stay outside. Outwit and outsmart Covid-19.
PS: Nice framing with the tire.

Always nice to take a stroll, you never know what you might find.

Absolutely -- given the opportunity to take a walk over sitting in a waiting room, I'd always choose the walk! I love Ethiopian food.

My mechanic was having no one in their waiting room for the first wave but now lets people wait for a short time.

Very smart move Sharon, I would have done the same thing. I like your through the tire shot, very nice indeed!

As it happens, I need to take my car in for servicing, too. Not sure what I'll do as there are no "palm readers" nearby. :-)

yes I"m the same with being in enclosed spaces, I still even keep a good distance away from others.
