November Part II – Life on the “Wet” Coast

3 Nov

I’m singing in the rain, just singing in the rain; What a wonderful feeling, I’m happy again. Singin’ In the Rain – Arthur Freed

It’s time to admit it and put away the sunscreen and sunglasses because summer is over — the rainy season is here!

Since the rain is inevitable, the best thing to do is put on the gumboots, Gore-Tex jacket, pants and that funny looking waterproof hat and have some fun outside! You’re never to old to go puddle-jumping!! And as my mom used to say – a little water won’t hurt you!

There is something pleasant about a walk in the rain…the air smells different, it feels fresh. The beautiful red, yellow and orange leaves splash brilliant flashes of colour in the dreary, grey world. It IS fun to jump in all the puddles and feel like a child again, if only for a few moments.

Then there is the BEST part of a walk in the rain on a drab, soggy day — and that’s coming home, getting into dry clothes, curling up on the couch with a blanket and a steaming cup of hot chocolate and hunkering down with a good book in front of a roaring fire – while the rain patters on the windows!
