Into One's Life a Little Rain Must Fall

I was the first to arrive at San Souci yesterday for a family picnic. I stood on the beach and looked up at the sky. The wind was just starting to pick up and I did not know if it was dark because it wasn't quite 6 AM or was it rain clouds. I just knew it wasn't going to be a nice sunrise.

As the dawn started to break I could see a ship out on the horizon.

Then I noticed this big lump on the beach that turned out to be two guys and two girls sleeping it off, what ever "it" was. 
Then it started to get dark again.

The wind really started to pick up.

We started to gather under the tarp. I started to cover my camera as you can see on the corner of this photo and the kids threw blankets on themselves to keep the rain off them. 

My son stood under his umbrella and watched the rainbow as he talked away on the phone.

I looked down the beach and a few people were starting to come out again and it was getting brighter

At last the sun shone brightly. Ships started to pass, sails were set aloft and people propped up their chairs. Our friends and family started to arrive, kids went down to the ocean, and a good time was had by all.
