Day Fifteen of the Journey

Not only did I sleep in today,
but it's been lightning 
and thundering 
and raining.

Thank heavens for umbrellas.

Since the storm has finally gone by, 
let's mosey out and take a look at the city.

Would you look at that? 
I can't believe we're standing
at the base of 
the Temple of the Jaguar. 
This is almost like the temple in 
The Stone Traveler
And up at the top is where Tag, 
my protagonist, was almost killed.

Shall we try walking up those stairs? 
It could get dicey. 
They're slick from the rain and
there's no handrail.

Why don't we think about it a while
and check out this site.

Well, after reading that, 
I understand why it's raining.

Writers know that a storm in a book 
foreshadows bad things to come.
But I'm a big girl.
I can take the good with the bad.
Maybe ... wait a minute.
Yes, I can.

Meanwhile, I'm going to look for

  1. Carolyn,
    I love the rain, too. And it's much cooler than it has been.

  2. I got caught up in my umbrella and the wind took me off. Sorry I am late!

    We have gone back to August heatwave here. No rain for many months. I will send you a little ray of sunshine.

  3. Glynis,
    Sorry about the umbrella. I'm just glad you didn't let the wind take you too far away.

    Oh, how thoughtful of you to bring some sunshine. I needed warming up. ;)

  4. Laura,
    I enjoy the rain, most times. Though I'm glad yesterday's storm has gone by.

  5. Went hiking up in the canyon on Wednesday to check out a hike for girls camp next summer. Half a mile in it started raining hard enough we needed to turn back. Then it started to hail. Ouch. I should have stayed home.

  6. Marilyn,
    Hiking in the rain is no fun. Been there, done that. And it's kind of scary in the mountains. Seems the lightning is right beside you. I'm glad you're all right. Come with me and look for some sunshine. ;)
