Rain or Shine...Be My Valentine

Sunset Last Saturday ( 02/11/12) @ La Jolla
It has been a rainy week for us since weekend. I am not complaining, since I actually prayed for rain to come. It has really been a dry season for us, and we need the rain. I am excited to hear that our local mountains (Mt. Laguna and Palomar) are now covered with snow. The rain is still pouring hard today as I write this. But yesterday, during Valentine's day, the rain took a short break in the afternoon until sunset, to give us a beautiful Valentine date. But regardless, whether rain or shine....we both know we will have a beautiful Valentine at the beach. Let me share with you a poem by poet Donna Wallace, about having a beautiful Valentine, come rain or shine.

Rain or Shine...Be My Valentine
poem by Donna Wallace

Raindrops on our dresses, 
Sunshine on our face, 
No matter what the weather, 
The look of love won't be replaced. 

The silent sound as rain falls, 
The brilliance of the sun 
They only promise radiance,
 Caused by either one
 Let it rain, or let it shine, 
It won't matter none. 

You're such a lovely Valentine, 
In either rain, or sun 
Let it snow, let it hail, 
Earth blanketed with white.
 It won't prevent our day, 
Or deny the magic of our night.

Right after work yesterday, we went to La Jolla as we had planned for our Valentine day walk at the beach. Thankfully, the rain stopped for a while, allowing us to take some photos of the sunset. After the sun disappeared from the horizon, we still took some more time photographing the last hint of colors that interplay with the stormy clouds. This may not be the most beautiful sunset we have seen in San Diego, but we are still very thankful for the window of opportunity given to us by nature to spend a very relaxing walk, and time at the beach listening to the sound of the waves as they come on shore and hit the rocks.

 There were several couples celebrating the Valentine at the beach too, some of them hiding at the cove provided by the rocks, some playing with the water. The sunset brought magical moment to everyone who were there, somehow, it always make people stop and just enjoy it disappears from the horizon leaving us with different colors of light.
