i would estimate- at least a hundred millilitres,
and more is coming during the rest of the week
it was intermittent...
the sky would darken and a very heavy gloom
would set in within the walls of our dry, cozy, little home
and the torrents of rain would pour down for about an hour or so.
then, in its full late summer strength and force,
the sun would come out,
for just enough time
to give us a chance to walk and explore
we grab our just-in-case umbrellas
and head always towards the ocean
always aching for that deep joy of being awed by its vastness and beauty
never do we return home disappointed
