JOURNAL: June 24, 2006

Today the rains set in again, and it looks like they may be with us awhile. A great gray haziness is everywhere overhead, and about every hour a heavy rain descends. I did manage to get a good walk in earlier in the morning, in between storms. The air was cool and fresh, and I paced along, up and down the hills, in a fairly brisk manner. At one point, I stopped beside the pond to admire the lily pads, each one carrying some perfectly rounded beads of rainwater. The beads looked much more like glass or pearls than water. Hundreds of them, thousands, gleamed in the gray air all across the pond. (See pictures.)
