Socked In

No matter how you look at it, we're socked in. I am fortunate to have been gifted with the ability to entertain myself and to feel fine when I'm alone with myself.  These gifts make these vacation days of heavy rains okay. Not so for my mate. With no sun or pool/beach time, he feels cheated--like we're spending money for nothing. I think not for nothing. I do prefer warm showers to numbing cold. The hotel is accommodating.  The rain is beautiful. The sea is fascinating. I love photographing it. I don't know for how long?


SUNRISE: 6:17

    



A GLIMPSE OF PROMISE, 7:30ish



    


1:30 PM THE WASHOUT WAS OFFICIAL. 



    



SUNRISE 6:18. Photo taken at 7:38. Still no sighting of the sun.  But we were so thrilled the driving rainstorm overnight had lightened up. I could only imagine what being here would be like in some real tropical storm. Last night's rain pounding against the window plus the waves crashing the shore was a symphony I would prefer to have missed. --Maybe I can find a piano for a practice session today--after I get my nails cut at the salon?  I have a piano at home; I don't have a salon on the premise for a quick grooming.  I don't have anyone setting out a lavish breakfast either. 


    



   

NO SUN BAYSIDE EITHER. JUST BREAKFAST OVERLOOKING A GRAY BAY. NOT TOO SHABBY. TRAVEL IS ALWAYS AN ADVENTURE.

  1. Well I hope there will be some sunshine coming your way, Linda. Those grey clouds and sea photos are alright for so long.

    1. They are wearing thin. The predictions for the next few days aren't good either. But when we look at the weather pattern across the southern states, it's understandable. These things happen. Unfortunately, if we left for home earlier than planned, the airlines wants $700 to change the tickets. Might as well stay in the warm rain than pay through the nose for a quicker return to multiple inches of snow, slush and ice skids.

    1. Thanks Danielle. From the artist's viewpoint, not the beach lover's viewpoint.

  3. Wonderful photos. Wandering about Miami, I sometimes think about the poor tourists on some of our rainy days.

    1. From what I've read the current weather in the Southern states is affecting the weather here. You've got rain. We've got rain. We're fortunate to have been here for over two weeks, during which we had fine weather. Only the last two and a half days have been inclement.

      Thanks. I do think the rainy weather is beautiful to artists, not to sun worshipers.
