cloudy day at the beach

Following a 12-hour stretch of wind and rain, and fog, the sun broke through bringing the temperature up to above 60 degrees F. This felt wonderful after a cold start to fall here in Maine. Normally, my oldest has swim practice on Thursdays after school, but this seemed like the perfect afternoon for an adventure. I packed a few cameras, including one for my son, snacks, and surprised them with the news that we were going to the beach instead of practice. We have had so little time all together since the start of school with soccer. Now, wouldn't you know, as soon as I leave to pick them up, the clouds come back. It looked like it might pour, but we drove on, over the bridge to Bailey Island for a jaunt anyways, rolling the dice. We were rewarded with dramatic clouds, and sun peaking through as the tide moved out revealing sea glass here and there. I can't wait to get the film back from this time, but for now, the digitals will have to do.
