      ... out in the shade. Carmen still wasn't interested in the water but eventually we got her to come around to walking on sand. After a bit of play and a brief nap on my part, the sky started growing dark from the northeast. Just as we started to pack up and go, a rain storm blasted the beach scattering tourists everywhere.
