sometimes you just gotta' row

What does the on-time bird get?

While gulls and crows seem to have taken shelter, unusual at low tide, the robins don’t mind the rain at all. It probably helps that it surfaces a buffet of food source for them.

It’s more of a pervasive soaking, which would leave both sides of an umbrella dripping, than a drenching pour.

At a mile out, the water and rainfall merge to a shade of muted blue-grey. When it bounces off the Gore-Tex, it sounds like millet being poured on a tiled floor, changing to rice according to the force of the wind. The brush-swishing of the pine trees and the tide-warning horn underlay a syncopated rhythm.

Buds and blossoms are likely to follow. Sounds good to me.
