The Rain, The Park, and all its Beauty

12 Oct

The jetty in the rain

Noisy Miner in the rain

While most of Sydney stayed indoors, or certainly stayed away from deliberate, outdoor activities, we ventured out to see the special, soft, misty beauty that the gentle rain provides.

And, weren’t we rewarded?  Despite the raindrops, and singing at the top of their voices, a  few Noisy Miners alighted in front of me, making an engaging scene. The river, misted over, permeated a soft, soothing aura.

Sure, we love the brilliant sunshine, but doesn’t precipitation also offer something awesome?

    I remember sitting with my sister in a car watching the rain and she said “I so love the rain.” A simple yet profound memory. Thanks for your lovely description of rain by your home, you make it seem like a rainforest.

      Rain is so evocative: my husband Ron loves the sound of rain on the roof! And I love to watch the raindrops falling on the water…..
