All that lush green around here comes at a price.
We get a LOT of rain! The climate here is considered to be "Coastal Rain Forest" for a reason.
I don't mind walking in the rain though. The sound of rain on an umbrella is very peaceful, especially with birds still singing happily in the background.
Of course an umbrella only protects the upper half of one's body! I got soaked up to my knees.
It's a lovely walking route, a narrow park that runs along beside a stream.
