The thing is, it's quieter

gray day

You know the cliche 'leaden sky'? Today we've got it. The way it happens here, though, it's beautiful. The grays, when you look, are deep, deep blues, and they shift. It's like you feel the earth on its axis.

Oh -- and it's quiet (maybe moist air isn't friendly to sound?) so when a wave sweeps through you hear the sand move, get rearranged.

Today, where the creek pools and the tide moves in and ducks come each year to breed, a hawk flew by. A bunch of crows followed but no one called out, not the hawk or the crows and in the quiet, you could hear their wings.
