Friday's Rain

It was another day in the 80's, with the humidity nearly matching the temperature. It was pretty comfortable out, because of a strong breeze. This afternoon we had a nice long rain shower. I can already tell a difference in the plants, trees and grass that were really suffering from the dry weather.

There was hardly anyone at the beach while I was there. There were very few footprints , except those left by birds, after the rain. There weren't many shells either.







Later, as I was leaving a store, I noticed some very pink clouds from the sunset.

I bet the rain is very refreshing for plants and animals alike.

Hey Tootie, I love the pink skies at sunset--after a rain... SO gorgeous!!!

Glad you all are getting rain down there --since I know you do need it.

Hugs,
Betsy

I'm glad you got some rain -- we're trying to send more your way. The pink clouds are definitely beautiful.

Simply lovely photographs. ;) Makes me want to live near a beach on the gulf... be able to walk on the sand at sunset... I'm jealous.
