Remember that quick beach getaway? It happened- barely 24 hours in total, yet enough rain and gloom to satisfy even the saddest Russian poet.
The rain was stop and start all weekend: blue sky, then mist. Sun, then hazy grayness. Isn't that the perfect beach weather? ;) Our clothes weren't merely apocalypse chic this time- they were Noah's Ark apocalypse chic.
This being the Pacific Northwest, plenty of other people had also decided to take advantage of such a lovely spring day. April showers and all that.
And the dogs on the beach were having a blast! My parents have an elderly golden retriever named Chili who lives for these trips to the ocean. (Кит insists on staying home, of course.)
We stayed out as long as we could, until the wind and rain picked up and everyone except for Chili was ready for four walls and a roof.
The best part of all this? The tea afterwards :) There's no such thing as a bad time for tea!
Chili got a well-deserved nap.
The next morning was sunnier (!!!) but our routine didn't change- a walk, followed by tea... and then beach time was over. Back to city life.
How is your April going so far?
Do you have any plans for getting out of town?
