Lucy and I have been walking in the drizzle down by the lake for most of the week. Lucy, like me, does not really like being out in the rain all that much however it is a fact of life we take for granted if we want to live on the lower mainland of British Columbia. Because Lucy and I are out so much in it Fred got me a really good water proof jacket and two pairs of water proof walking boots/shoes. I am usually warm and dry for the most part. Lucy however much shake violently every now and then to stay reasonably comfortable.
Last year at this time it was a very different scene here. There was snow and ice most days through January. I thought it was never going to end.While I did not like it I loved some of the beauty it brought. Trees covered in snow and icicles hanging from roof tops.
This morning as I was going through my pictures I came across this one that I took just a couple of days ago and I realized that every season seems to bring it's very own beauty. I never really think that it is beautiful out when I am walking in the rain, but when I look back over some of my pictures I realize just how gorgeous even the drizzle can be when mother nature creates it.
Today as I run off to give a workshop I am wishing I had more time today to walk in the drizzle with Lucy and just enjoy the beauty. Where ever you are today I hope that you can get out and enjoy the beauty of the day.
