There's nothing quite like a rainy weekend to allow yourself to regroup, slow down, and truly listen to the rain. Peter and I arrived in Deauville, after our photography workshop in Normandy, on Saturday afternoon which was gray but not rainy. Since our arrival however, there's been a constant misty rain and fog that envelops you but never soaks - unless you're out for quite along time. It's really quite comforting. It's forced us to relax, and not plan - which is a good thing after nearly two weeks of touring around.
Yesterday was Sunday, a day of rest and one when family and friends get together, enjoy a meal, and a walk in the park (even in the rain). The view from our window, overlookng the square in Deauville, was wonderful.
Every walk of life passed before us, the very rich and those that aren't so, the stylish and the wannbees, families, children, star-struck lovers, and simple folk like you and me. As many of you know, I am never bored and yesterday - when I decided I'd photograph umbrellas from our window - the day became very entertaining. I'll have to ask Valerie if this qualifies as street photography.
This slide show isn't as good as I'd like, but I hope you find it entertaining - a rainy Sunday afternoon in Normandy.

We're heading home and have no more time now for posting, but we hope you enjoy this Sunday afternoon in the park ... in Deauville.
