RAINY DAYS AND MONDAYS ALWAYS GET ME DOWN
"Anyone who says sunshine brings happiness has never danced in the rain."
OK, it's really Tuesday and I actually liked riding in the rain today. It was only raining for about a half-mile before I rode out of it but it was a nice relief from the heat and typical Kona conditions.
OK times two. These photos aren't from today, they were taken just before sunset Saturday when it was raining pretty hard downtown while the sun was still shining. The light was excellent — Golden hour.
Back to today, it was a good ride. Lots of wind, a little rain, good music and a day on the bike. Have a great day.
