Rainy Heaven

My day on the trail began in a light rain which soon transformed into a steady downpour. But guess what? I loved every minute of it. 

Thank you REI. Having all the right equipment made walking in the rain a joyful experience. 

Around midday the rain stopped completely and I had a lovely picnic lunch of local blue cheese, dried apricots and artisanal bread. I was in heaven.

Tonight I'm staying in a nice hotel in Aumont-Aubrac, and at this moment it is pouring outside and I'm watching the lightning flash while sipping hot chocolate. I'm still in heaven.


  1. Wish we could be as enthusiastic about the downpours here in Haiku.

  2. Yes, you aren't missing anything on Maui. Constant rain here. No wonder you are in Heaven.
