Don’t get discouraged if you’re on that much-deserved vacation to the beach and the forecast calls for rain. Most rain around these parts doesn’t last all day so just wait it out. But if you do get that gray and rainy day that seemingly lasts forever there are still plenty of things to do that don’t involve staying indoors curled up in front of the TV!
