Travel theme: Rain

I spent the day dodging rain showers and decided to pay homage to the soggy weather with this week’s travel theme, starting off with a shot of a rainy day in the Cascades.

Let it rain!

❤ Ailsa

The best thing one can do when it’s raining is to let it rain. – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Rainy days should be spent at home with a cup of tea and a good book. – Bill Watterson

The rain continued. It was a hard rain, a perpetual rain, a sweating and steaming rain; it was a mizzle, a downpour, a fountain, a whipping at the eyes, an undertow at the ankles; it was a rain to drown all rains and the memory of rains. – Ray Bradbury
