Ola from Sunday night, which suddenly turned into a Monday morning

March 16, 2015

There’s something to be said about bringing the weather with us.

But we Vancouverites, what do we care about the rain! We don’t ever bother with an umbrella in a good old West Coast downpour… so a tropical storm? It’s just March lioning it.

And then there’s that sky!

And that tropical Pacific.

This evening I walked in the warm, wet sand, and let the surf splash up my legs. I watched dolphins playing and pelicans floating, and small birds darting among the palms, until the last of the light was gone.

And then, exhausted from two extremely shorts nights and hours of travel, I slept, and slept, and slept thru the warm and humid Mexican night. 😀

    Beautiful scenery and I can almost feel the warm nights. We are having sunshine up here today – you will miss it – but then it isn’t as warm as Mexico, that’s for sure. We always say that when you see someone in the Pacific Northwest carrying an umbrella you know they are new to the area, or a tourist. We just paddle along on our duck feet.

      I know, I know 😀 those tourists and the umbrellas. Hilarious. I’m glad there’s sunshine back home. I have some flowers coming that need it. 😀
