When I moved out here the shoes that I wore to meetings had leather soles. They were always stuffed with newspapers to dry out. I learned that in town I should have shoes with rubber soles. I bought the largest and most sturdy umbrella I could find.
Today, it is very windy too. That makes me concerned about the possibility of a power failure.
Here on Bowen Island these are my outdoor slip-on shoes, and I’m likely to wear a backcountry rain jacket and not use the umbrella.
I’ve always felt silly wearing any kind of a hat. Mountain travel taught me to wear a hat with a peak to shade my eyes from the sun. On a rainy day that peak keeps the rain off my glasses.
These are small adaptations.
