Rain, rain, go away

All summer, Spain (or at least Madrid) has been dry as a bone. So we finally snuck in a few days at the beach. And guess what? It's raining. Yesterday morning we went to the beach for a couple of hours, but it was really windy and the red flag got put up. Try giving a 5-year-old a good reason why he cannot go into the water.

We came home for lunch and planned to go back to the beach later but the weather did not improve. Last night we were treated to lightning and thunder and pouring rain. Personally, I enjoyed it. The kids, not so much. We bought them Happy Meals last night to make up for the lack of beach.


This morning we woke to the sound of more rain and more thunder. Again, OK with me. The kids have dealt with it pretty well. For all the adults it's cool. "K" has joined us here today so right now we're all sitting in Kelly and April's enormous kitchen (it's bigger than mine!) The other girls and Troy are playing a loud game of Nertz. Troy is (as usual) bemoaning his losing streak. He's not getting any sympathy. Kelly and I, the computer nerds, (neither of us are big game players) are sitting here with the Macs. Wireless is so much fun! I gotta get me some of that. April also treated us to homemade cinnamon rolls. It's been a good day.


Tonight we are going to have Pizza Hut which makes me very happy. They closed the Pizza Hut near our house so we never get it anymore.
The best of Castellon....hearing church bells ring. The worst....DRIVING through a maze of horrible small, one-way streets.

OK, Troy won a hand.

Kelly is talking to his Mac and it is answering him. I'm very afraid.

And that is the end of my random rambling.

heather - gotta say that the church bells are nice, except on Saturday afternoons and Sunday mornings when both churches announce mass every 15 to 30 minutes and they lack a melody and are more of a constant ding-dong, ding-dong (can you tell that I am currently experiencing this?)

and ro - you and sophie (and kids) are welcome anytime! (i know, a dangerous thing for a spanish coastal dweller to mention to a sun-deprived dutchman!)
