For the first day in a month, it rained at Lake Dawn where my son and family lives near Port Angeles, WA. We had a largely indoor day. This photo was taken yesterday at the end of the new dock my son built this year.
Unlike Redondo Beach, the forest smells so incredibly earthy after rain--mixture of dirt, trees, flowers, life, decay, death, and for some reason, it reminds me of the creation story. It would be hard to ever take a vacation if I lived here--except to Southern California in winter when there is perpetual rain.
