Two Rhode Island transplants have settled here in Northwest Florida on Escambia Bay. In Rhode Island, we spent most of our summers and fall days sailing the waters of Narragansett Bay, Block Island Sound and Buzzards Bay. We are so delighted to have found another Bay to enjoy.

IT'S RAINING, IT'S POURING...
Let the rain kiss you. Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops. Let the rain sing you a lullaby.
Finally, it rained yesterday. I know, so what, you say. But this was a very big event. We have not had rain since the end of February. I've sat and watched it rain all around me--to the north of us, to the west of us, but never ON us. Well yesterday, the heavens opened right on top of us. Big, drops of liquid sunshine poured down for about 45 minutes followed by a another 30 minutes or so of gentle rain. It was glorious. And yes, I went out into it. It felt wonderful. Then about 5:30 p.m. it happened again. Amazing. The total rainfall was 2"!! I didn't have to water the gardens today. Yay!
