By mid-morning our words for the day clearly had become rain and wind.
However, I did make an outdoor foray with our host that included a stretch in heavy vegetation, like walking through a secret vegetation world, mostly avoiding the wind…
…although mostly we trod blacktop. We found two of these rust-brown newts on one short stretch. Critters!
Here’s a late-afternoon view across the neighborhood to the ocean through the rain distorted window.
