taking a little walk

This summer vacation will be one that is certainly remembered. And swimming in the rain. That is probably the best part. Did I mention it is still raining in these parts of Florida? Yes. Still raining.
I took a little walk this morning. Over to Grace's blog for her Summer Is series. And told of a few things that summer is to me. Besides my Saturday mornings. And walking barefoot. And now, swimming in the rain.

Can you send some rain--just a little north--to Georgia??
We were looking forward to rain this week--but as each day passes & the path of the storm is updated--it looks less likely that we will get some much needed rain!

Enjoy!! :)

I used to love walking in the rain, but swimming in the rain? That sounds like a wonderful sensation!

It still sounds perfectly lovely to me. I think as long as you're with the people you love, it's all good... :)

I would love a little bit of rain here in California. A few summers ago it started to rain while a bunch of us were swimming, it was so much fun!

Try blowing bubbles in the rain. And just after a rain. Bubbles will sit on a wet surface and not break.They hold their own rainbows. It is quite magical.

Rain is nice but really, I hope you do get some great weather because, you know, that is why people go to Floriday...I must say though, I love the feet shot :)

Hey, nice foot Leslie! Ugh, what can you do about those tropical storms. Swimming in the rain is pretty cool. Growing up we used to go to Hawaii every year and I have done my fair share of swimming in the rain too, such a cool feeling!

Hi! I linked here through Knitphomaniac's and really enjoyed the read :) On behalf of Florida, I apologize for the crappy weather you experienced. It's prime storm time. I'd be a little miffed if I came to vacay and had to deal with a storm.

I never like Summer (if there is in Singapore), but loves your Summer.

Any day in Florida is great, even the rainy days!

Miss the days as a kid playing in the rain with all the other kids:) Great fun.
