RIVER PICNIC

A picnic by the river this past early fall. It has been raining here continuously for the past five days. At the moment this river by our home is at it's full capacity with rain water. Outside the sky stays the darkest grey as if it's always evening, the streets are full of water and the earth is so very wet. At first we embraced it, went out in it, even went for a long rainy day hike in the hills. But today the desire to venture out in the pouring wetness has been replaced with thoughts of sunnier times, and eating outdoors again.
