While tourists may be disappointed, and I won't blame them, I tend to love this weather.
Makes me want to stay cosy at home, bake chocolate cakes and play board games. I only wish we had a fire place.
A fire place in Hawaii. I am not kidding you.
I also love to wander outside and watch the nature become more alive than ever.
The other day I was looking through out the window, it was pouring, yet I noticed all the shades of greens. It was late afternoon, the sky was grey, cloudy, foggy even and darkening fast but their was something about the light...I grabbed my baby carrier, grabbed my camera and snapped a few shots around our yard just before dusk. The colors, the smell and the rain on my skin made me feel very much alive and present in the moment. Marlowe seemed to like the little adventure (yes that's an adventure for a 2 month young!) and I got to practice my photography while holding her tight against me, my camera in one hand, the other one [hand] trying to protect it [the camera] from getting too wet.
Rain is life, don't avoid puddles, jump in one and let your inner-child shine!
