Finally, summer has arrived around here. We've had a solid stretch in the 80s. That ol' Fahrenheit scale hasn't notched the 90s yet, but we'll take it. Most years, we'll get a taste of the triple H's (hazy, hot and humid) near the end of May. This year? It was not to be. Now, we've paced through June and July, and the weather seems more indicative of Seattle and their rain, then the East coast. Down around the Old Port yesterday, we got caught in a mid-afternoon cloud burst. We sat on the doorstep of Greenhut Gallery for 10 minutes or so to watch some rushing shoppers trying to make a destination between big raindrops. The smell of the rain on the pavement was invigorating! Here's a shot looking off toward Peaks and some gentle afternoon breezes. More summer coming throughout the remainder of the week. Enjoy!
