From Sunset on the Coast to Rainbows at Home

Sunset on Gulf Shores Beach

This week’s trip to the coast was very short, but oh so sweet. The weather was not cooperative enough to sit on the beach and knit, but the views the approaching storm gave us were absolutely wonderful.  The image below was taken by Scott while he was walking on the beach, with his phone. Camera phones have come a long way, but he took out his phone while he was walking and snapped this shot of the sun going down.

I sat in the car and knitted while Scott did his daily beach walking. The wind was blowing very hard and although the temperature was not too bad, the wind was bone chilling.  We took a lovely drive down streets we had not ventured down before and stumbled upon a community cemetery. Some of you may think this odd, but I love cemeteries. It is just so fascinating wandering through them looking at the headstones, with the dates and sometimes the epitaphs on them. Some of them can be quite amusing since they are placed there by those left behind.

During our drive we stumbled upon these guys (gals) and I just wanted to jump right out of the car and join them in the fun! This is called Powered Para gliding and I think this would be such a cool hobby!!

Although the trip was short this time, we were greeted by this when we arrived back at our house. Beautiful, no?

Rainbow after a storm over the farm

This rainbow came right over the property and the sun lit up the house across the pond.  This rainbow, which turned into a double and triple rainbow lasted for a good 5-10 minutes, longest and brightest we have seen in a long time.

One thought

  1. I, too, have enjoyed old cemeteries. In addition to the interesting epitaphs, one can sometimes see where epidemics have taken great groups of children in a two-week time frame, for instance. Makes a mom grateful for what she has.
