singing in the rain ….
Fair enough – I am from New England. I am used to the cold.
Photo: Perkins Cove, Ogunquit, ME in December. I have spent hundreds of mornings starring at/working from this amazing view.
But really, crisp cold snow is much different than drizzling wet rain.
Living in Seattle has taught me to work the rain. Here are a few of my favorite rainy day places and things.
Studying at sellar tea houses in Seattle. Pictured here: Miro Tea in Ballard.
My Nike Free running sneakers:
Perfect for running in the rain and mud. I’ve thrown them in the washing machine and they come out like new and dry very quickly. I find staying active despite the rain very important to my well-being. And let’s face it, there is nothing like a run in the rain to remind you that you are alive.
Water-fronts and water-front trail running:
Complete with hand harvested herb infused wine 🙂 (Many of my friends are ND students after-all … what do you expect?) Amazing meals at restaurants serving locally derived cuisine. We had the best meal at Emmer & Rye in Queen Anne this weekend. Their Cauliflower Salad is over the moon good. (Photo by Emmer&Rye.)
Comfort food that’s healthy (Gluten free goat cheese and vegetable crepe@Miro):
What do you do to beat the rainy day blues?
