Beached rain

My partner is a great believer in walks on the beach.

Borrowing from him, I am pioneering a slight alternative… walks in the rain on the beach.

The other day during the mysterious Winter Storm Warning I took to the beach and was struck by how calm the water was and how warm the temperature was. (air not water) It was lashing rain and I can say there were very few people out and about. A few hardcore dog walkers in the distance and one drenched person running.

Ever so peaceful. No people, that vast water and those tankers anchored out there — what exactly are they waiting there for?
