I went past Hobie Beach yesterday and snapped this picture of a deserted beach. Now you may be a little confused about the fact that the beach is empty in the middle of summer. We have had a fabulous summer so far. Its been hot (perhaps a little too humid at times), but also very dry. You could see how little rain we've had just by looking at the lawns and gardens around town. That was until a few days ago. For the last thee days its been thankfully raining softly and constantly. Thus the empty beach.
