We woke up to heavy rain this morning. Lawton Lane was flooded, skies were gray, and rain was pouring from the clouds. We needed the precipitation.
Even though the sky was still overcast, we ventured to the beach just before noon. A few drops fell as we walked along the surf. The water was moderately rough, but we dove in like kids and had a grand time. Hardly anyone was nearby. And we weren't fried like on so many sunny summer days. All in all it was a wonderful time at the beach.
Lou Ann just came home. She had afternoon tea with Pat Garber. We'll be headed to the Jolly Roger for supper and music shortly. We hope your weekend has been at least as relaxing.
