Rainy Day in Seattle

It rained most of the morning and afternoon. One of my favorite times to work at my pottery wheel is when it's both rainy AND warm. I push the wheel (it's ON wheels) out to the entrance of the garage, where I can watch the rain but not be in it. As I watched today I thought how good it would be to swim in the lake while it was raining. When I was ready for a throwing break I walked the dog the mile and a quarter to the lake, in the rain, and went swimming, in the rain. Fantastic. The eye level perspective of the drops on the water is stunning. And you have the whole beach to yourself. I hope it rains tomorrow so I can do it again.
