Default Any tips for shots at the beach when it's mostly cloudy?

Going to the San Juan Islands soon and the weather may be cloudy with very little sun and even have a few showers.

Any tips or creative ideas would be appreciated.

Take a tripod and try some long exposures.......like into the 5-30 sec range see what happens.

You don't have to run and hide when it's wet. The beach can be quite atmospheric in a storm.
