The fine weather didn’t last, of course. The clouds rolling in from the ocean pulled a great blind across the sky, and all the shadows faded away, so that everything suddenly seemed dull and listless. It wasn’t long before it started to rain: just a very light drizzle at first, with a gentle drop here and a gentle drop there. Algy knew that the rain would quickly grow heavier, and the wind stronger, but in the meantime it was not entirely unpleasant, albeit somewhat damp. So he found himself a sheltered spot underneath a stand of Marram grass at the edge of the dunes, and perched there for a while, watching the raindrops begin to fall…
