A Little Fall of Rain

With all my worries and stresses about health and life, I knew I needed to get to the beach on Sunday, weather forecast be damned! It didn't look too bad when we headed out, though I think we knew we might see a little rain at some point during the day, it was a little sunny with a few clouds scattered around. Isla Blanca was pretty deserted, not too many others taking the chance. We weren't there very long before the skies really started to change. We could see Isla Mujeres getting rained on in the distance and the wind was moving towards us, but we decided to just wait it out and see what the weather gods would bring us. What's the worst that could happen? We were already wet from swimming, couldn't get any wetter.


This is what was coming our way....


Blue skies still trying to peek through...




Now the rain has started.....as dark as the clouds were at a distance, they weren't nearly as bad once they were on top of us. The wind and rain sure felt cold after the beating hot sun...




Hubby pretending that the palapa offered protection, Max wondering where the sun went...



Best thing to do in a chilly rain? Get in the ocean!


Max and I ended up in the sea calling for Hubby to join us. He thought we were nuts, but once he was in, he realized that it was the warmest place to be. The storm passed in about ten minutes and we were back to our regularly scheduled sun and fluffy clouds. Maybe not our best day at the beach, but we had a good time regardless.

A song from "Les Miserables" was running through my head as we dodged rain drops, "A Little Fall of Rain". Rather a depressing song, it's Eponine's death scene, but for some reason it always makes me happy and hopeful and it pops into my brain whenever it's raining.

Hopefully we'll have some happy sunny pics soon, but you know, paradise ain't always blue skies and margaritas!

It's funny you mention this. When we used to camp at Tulum during the summer and we'd get rainfalls and storms my parents would always make us get out of the water saying that if a lightning hit us while we were in the sea, we'd be electrocuted...

I think they were just looking for a reason to get us out of the water and sitting down to dinner without us putting up a fight. LOL

Those clouds over Isla look amazing. Usually I'm laying on the beach on Isla watching it rain in Cancun!!
