Road Trippin’ Spider

Driver's Side Mirror

She’s not visible in the photo, but there’s a little spider that lives behind the driver’s side mirror. Over the past three weeks, she’s become quite the traveler. From Sechelt to Vancouver to Whistler to Vancouver and back again to Sechelt.

I like to think she’s traveled farther than her siblings. If spiders could send postcards, she’d totally do it because she’s got sass.

There were moments when I thought I lost her along my travels and my heart would sink, but then she’d emerge from behind the mirror and I’d cheer. I’d offer her words of encouragement when her web was looking shabby and I’d wish her bon appétit when she’d catch a meal.

It’s funny how attached I became to her—my eight-legged road warrior companion.
