Merritt Island, Florida
Sunshine On A Cloudy Day
It was mostly a rainy day. As I took care of various errands, I found various places to take a break. I explored some of my familiar haunts out at the Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge. I hiked through the woods. The mosquitoes and no-see-ums attacked me with a vengence. I couldn't outrun them, of course. Thunder rumbled. The sky let loose. As long as I was beneath the trees, it wasn't too bad. The bugs just made it miserable, though. Perhaps the rain made them hungrier? I had to get back to my van. Of course, the rain stopped as soon as I was back in my van.
I was in the mood to remain outdoors and see what I could find. I explored various paths, roads, and wild places. It seemed that each time I got out to hike a bit, the rain came! At one point, the sun shone through the parting clouds. I found a field of sunflowers. I slogged through the mud to get some photos. This is one of them. I liked the way that the sunflower glowed against the cloudy sky. Of course, the sunshine was brief. It began to rain again, and I had to leave.
