After the storm

(This is the third part of a story; the first part is Before the rain comesย and the second part is Summer rain, if you’d like to catch up.)

With the sunshine returning although light rain was still falling, and sheep still hiding under trees to stay dry, we left our shelter and began to walk.

I didn’t mind the rain as it wasn’t hard at all, the raindrops actually felt quite refreshing. Then I noticed a faint rainbow ahead, which always makes me happy.

Once the rain stopped completely and the sun came out, everything looked so beautiful. There was a warmth in the light and an ethereal quality in the air that felt magical. I was very happy to be there to witness this at that time.

I had a bit of a Wind in the Willows moment when we reached the cottage perched right next to the stream that feeds the lake.

The sheep were back to their grazing, water was dripping from the leaves, and everything had been drenched and cleansed. It had been a lovely little walk and we were certainly ready for some food and rest in Woodstock.

Check out the last part of this story tomorrow!
