Rainy Days

It seems year in and year out between May and June, one of those months has a lot of rain in it. Now that we're into May, it might just be our rainy month this year. It's been a pretty rainy week which means walking the dog has to occur on the rain's time schedule and not the dog's. It does make life a little more interesting.

Yet, the walks take on a little extra since everything looks a tad more shiny under the dampness. It's fun seeing new things each day while walking the same route; the house with its new load of wood for next winter, the cleared field starting to regain its spring greening and a car that might have come out of Havana it's so old.
Unfortunately, I had to be in town yesterday. Since it was Wednesday, it was no car ferry day so I rode home on the aging Island Romance which I've been riding since 1975. It's got great seating so there's always a lot of chattering going on between neighbors and the usual riders lost in their thoughts and books. Always a good way to come back to Peaks. I couldn't help taking a couple of pics. Enjoy.

I think I miss the smell of those old boats the most. Something about painted metal, seawater, and diesel brings back fond memories.

And, is that a Ghostbusters herse next to that house???

There's nothing like the smell of the old boats on a rainy day as we all limp home like drowned rats!!
