A Walk on the Beach

I was sitting in my camper and Donna was in hers.
It had been rainy for two days.
We were playing Words with Friends on our iPads.

All of a sudden I saw the sun peek through
and couldn't stand being inside anymore.
On my turn I messaged her.

"The sun just came out for a second.  I'm getting off
my lazy butt and going for a walk on the beach.  Wanna go?"
"Sure" came her immediate response.

We saw these pretty flowers as we prepared to walk over the dunes.

We walked north toward the Pier at Old Orchard Beach.

Donna made a new friend.

After fish tacos we settled on a balcony at the end of the pier for Margaritas.  Even though it was still mostly cloudy, there were still many people enjoying the beach.

Then the clouds began to lift.

The sun turned the waves white and sparkling.

We watched the sun set behind the Ferris wheel.

The lights came on.

And the whole world turned pink.

We walked back down the beach in the dark,
drove back to the campground.
She went into her camper and I went into mine.

Then I heard a ding, checked my iPad,
and we continued
our games.

Those clouds look wonderful to me. It rained here last Saturday almost an inch and it was so wonderful. I did not use an umbrella all day. I just let myself get wet where ever I went.

Sounds like a perfect day!
