Where Did My Beach Go?

 

Before:

… misty mountains … a bit soggy, but romantic.

The view to the North

After:

… more rain … and snow-melting further up the valley.

Lots more water

Brutus:

“There is a tide in the affairs of men.
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
Is bound in shallows and in miseries.
On such a full sea are we now afloat,
And we must take the current when it serves,
Or lose our ventures”

William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, Act 4, scene 3
