It’s Raining

as rain neared Gaviota
Rain has come.  All day it was pending, promising, pushing towards us slowly, but we were never confident, having been so long without it. In the morning I walked up Gaviota Peak with my friend Kelley, and we had no need of the rain jackets we had hopefully stuffed into our packs, but we did enjoy that soft moist air on our faces, and the sky was thick with cloud, as you can see from the picture above. And now, hours later, that sound.  It isn’t pouring, but it’s raining steadily. And we are grateful.
