Tuesday - Rain at the shore

While no one wishes for rain on a beach vacation, once in a while it's nice to enjoy a rainy day.  It slows everything down --no one's getting ready to set up camp on the beach.  In fact, nobody has anywhere to be.  Everyone finds a quiet corner to curl up in and relax.  Like everything else, relaxation comes in shades, flavors, textures, or however your perceptions interpret them.  A rainy day on vacation has a different aesthetic.  It's a more grey, soft, and womb-like feeling.  It's vacation; there's nowhere to be, no appointments, no schedules, just rain and quiet.  A wonderful time to read a book or just take a nap.

Rainy old pier.

Good food and good company.
