I've often heard children say, "There's nothing to do today". I beg to differ. I'd like to inspire you to do something. Anything. Read. Bake. Hike. Fish. Plant. Sail. Climb. Play. Reach. Move. Laugh. Dream; and take time to sit with me on The Old Granite Step.

A rainy afternoon on the Connecticut shore.

To be at the shore in the sunshine is spectacular.  Warm sand that you can dig your toes into.  Gulls crying from above.  Sun shining on the water showcasing the ripples on the waves. 
But to be at the shore on a rainy day is wonderfully soothing.  Raindrops falling softly on the water; barely disturbing the calm, smooth surface.  Clouds shrouding the beach in comfort.  The gulls are resting and quiet.
 The shack on the beach; a testament to days gone by.
 This grey day doesn't encourage swimming or fishing.
 Sailboats are motionless today.
Marsh grass so green and and the inlet so inviting.  I left without my kayak this morning.

 Remnants of a past storm.

 Oh how I would love to find a horseshoe crab that's been tagged.
 The fisherman are idle today.
 For recycled fishing line.
 The boat ramp waits for a customer on this rainy day.

 An osprey and a seagull; are they acquainted?
 A sentinel guarding the dock.
 Little children typically run to the boat, but not today.
The rain has settled in.  So peaceful.  So serene.
