Bob got some amazing closeups and I recorded a relaxing soundscape that features two nightjars, along with the eveloping whoosh of ocean waves washing into the shoreline about a quarter-mile away.

It had just rained, and dark clouds floated about, alternating with blue sky and sometimes bright windows or tunnels through which sunshine could be seen. The photo featured below blows my mind in more ways than one. Let me know how it effects you:
