Storm ?

Yesterday was a wonderful day all around. Lou Ann & I both took the day off. We decided to make the morning our beach time. After a long walk along the surf (we never passed another person all morning), we jumped into the ocean and swam for half an hour. The water was cool and the wind was blowing, but the waves were moderate and refreshing. After our swim we found a protected place and read & napped.

After lunch we caught up on a few small chores before Lachlan came over for a visit. The National Weather Service was calling for severe weather with 60 mph winds and nickel-sized hail. The three of us sat on the front porch steps and watched the sky turn gun-metal gray and listened as thunder rolled in the distance. Lightning flashed beyond the trees and a light rain fell, but the storm mostly passed us by.
