My goodness, whoever heard of rain in Southern California in July? The quick rain shower on Saturday evening was quite a surprise! The sky was lovely after the rain, with clouds that were white on the top with dark underbellies. It was such a moody night and the air so fragrant after being dampened. I was drinking it all in — it was so beautiful. I happily made my annual trek last week to Laguna Beach to attend the 77th presentation of the world-renown Laguna Festival of Arts and Pageant of the Masters.
