Stormy skies and seas.

We had a very relaxing few days at the coast. In fact, on Tuesday there was little else to do but relax as 108mm (over 4 inches) of rain fell in less than 24 hours. What bliss - warm and cozy, a good book and listening to the rain on the roof. These photos were taken the next morning. The seas weren't as high as I have seen them, but they still looked a bit ominous thanks to the dark clouds.

I've only been near an ocean once when I went to British Columbia and I wish I lived nearer to one...it's so beautiful, even when it's stormy! Beautiful pictures!

But, Alice, you left out the most important information: what book(s) did you read?

P.S. Welcome back!

Val - currently reading 'Tales from the Blackboard' a collection of stories by Australian teachers - the good, the bad, and the downright ugly of teaching. Also reading "Trowel and Error", autobiography of Alan Titchmarsh - English gardening guru, author, and TV presenter.

Have to confess that I also bought a Woman's Day for the first time in years, and even read most of the articles, although I tell myself I bought it for the Crossword, then get bored because it's not a challenge.

Looks like it was a lovely getaway. The ocean and lovely sunsets, what could be more relaxing...

How I love seeing those beautiful beaches! Glad you had a chance to listen to the rain on the roof, read and relax. Did you get any of that rain at home? Sounds like some interesting reading material.
Absolutely gorgeous pictures! Thanks for sharing those lovely views with us.
