A fishing vessel swaying on the active ocean waves. Back and forth...back and forth...I certainly hope that they brought along some 7Up and ginger snaps!
The waves lapping up against the shoreline, braking erratically and keeping the surfers away.
The details of nature seemed even more vibrant against the pale grey sky.
Deep purple pansies could not be eclipsed by the dullness of the day.
The sweet basil and cherry tomato plants which we potted last week, leaned into the brightest breaks in the clouds.
Bougainvillea vines blanketed the damp earth while swaying gently in the ocean breeze.
And tiny birds came to feast upon the seeds that I put out in our bird feeder.
While a solitary seagull floated home on the breeze.
And through it all, I realized that I could either give into the greyness, allowing myself to be carried off to a sad and lonely place, or I could observe the more subdued vignettes of the day with a gentler eye.
