Hurry up and wait

rainy car windowIt rained Saturday… I know! I wanted to meander through the roses and camellias at Eden Gardens State Park, but the rain began shortly after I began my hike. I followed a hurried walk to my car, with my camera safely tucked under my shirt, with a lengthy wait inside, hoping the clouds would part. They didn’t.

So, I headed toward the Gulf. I literally crossed over Highway 98 and drove into beautiful sunshine.  I took the long way to Grayton Beach State Park and wandered around the dune lake and scrub copse.

The rain hung around like my personal little, black gloomy cloud, so I just took pictures of it. By the end of my morning, Sky was posing all pretty for me.

I shied away from the still crowded beaches. I’m counting down the days until tourist season is over and I have the Gulf all to myself again. School starts around here on Aug. 19 – two more weeks.
