A Wet Day At The Beach

My original plan for yesterday was to finish painting the front porch.  Upon heading outside just before sunrise, I discovered we had received significant precipitation overnight.  Rain during July and August is not the norm for our area so it was very obvious that painting was out of the question.

Just for the fun of it, I took a drive out to the beach to see how many hardy tourists were venturing out on this damp day.  As I reach the top of the sand dunes, I was stunned the find the entire beach deserted!  The only sign of life were a large group of brown pelicans foraging in the surf. Apparently the pelicans are not deterred by the rain!

What a moody image, Steve. Glad you drove out there. Painting can happen another day.
