After the Rain

We got a downpour last night.  A loud, windy downpour.  We needed it.  The only bad thing about all the rain is that after a rain like that, the local trails are all closed.  So, I woke this morning, pretty dang sure a trail run was out of the question.  That was a-okay.  I spent the morning with my husband and then with chores – groceries, scrubbing the bathtub, washing dishes, laundering, napping (yes, napping! Smile). 

After getting the boys home from school, I took off out the front door for a cool evening run along the local beaches.  Everything was clean and beautiful as it always is after a rain.  The skies were bigger than usual, the clouds puffier.  The ocean was a deep blue, the sand a rich brown. 

Glorious.  It’s a wonder I drive all the way to the mountains to run when I have this here at home.

    1. They really are Courtney. It's good to get off the trails once in a while (a great while : )
