On The Waterfront …

My usual walk along the waterfront at noon took a few minutes longer because I hid out under the Highway 95 bridge after being caught in the lunch time down pour. The wind turned my umbrella inside out twice, ripping it in the process. Despite the rain, I was passed by 4 bicyclists who were far wetter than I was. I didn't see anyone else until I reached West Lakeshore Drive and the rain began to let up. I did see a new advertisement in a West Lakeshore Lane advertising condos that'll be coming to the ritzy lakeshore frontage soon. Seems one condo is still available. Dunno if the sign was pointing to that charcoal block house where a new concrete front wall was installed earlier this month to block prying eyes. Workers were removing last remnants of Ironman Coeur d'Alene, leaving behind a large, yellow-green patch of grass where the big tent had stood. A coupla boats on the water but only 2 people I saw on the water.

Question: On Facebook, Cindy's complaining that the rain prevented her from taking her daily walk. Cat lovers are finicky that way. Do you ever walk in the rain? Or even dance in the rain?
