The day that we arrived at Wright Point Resort it was extremely hot and humid. As is often the case in such weather conditions, the storm clouds started building late in the afternoon, and an intense thunderstorm was quick to follow. Mike and I have always loved storm watching, so we stayed down at the dock fishing and snapping photos until I finally convinced him that the lightning was getting a little too close for comfort. The sky was incredibly eerie and dramatic which made it a wonderful photo op!
Unfortunately, the storm did little to decrease the heat and humidity, so it was a long night spent tossing and turning, and the morning greeted us with a steady downpour of rain. So, as I used to do as a child, I simply went swimming in the rain to cool off. It was such a wonderful experience, floating in the water and turning my face up to the raindrops. I was the only one swimming, and I’m sure people were watching me from the windows of their cottages thinking I was crazy, but it made me insanely happy. That will be one of my many favourite memories from that weekend.
