The Rainbow Before the Rains

Monday morning greeted us with a delightful and colorful surprise – a rainbow! We had not heard any rain during the night, but there it was. Even better, this photo captured the rainbow with Kindred Spirit and the Hope Town lighthouse, thanks to Dan.

The curious thing about this rainbow is that it preceded the very cloudy, windy, cool, and wet weather we are now having. Monday was a decent day – sun, a dinghy ride and a little snorkeling. But today and the rest of this week is not so good. True, we are not having single digit temperatures with ice and snow, but, hey, we are in paradise and expect daily sunshine and more than 66 degrees! 🙂 We are reading, napping, visiting, and organizing things around the boat.

Here are a few photos of special places and views we have found on our walks around Elbow Cay, on nicer days.

This memorial garden is a work in progress. It is open to anyone and sits high enough to have a wonderful view of the ocean.

I am thinking sunny thoughts, hoping that this cold front will move more quickly than forecasted.

Looking forward to a future day at the beach!

  1. Wow! I have been away from the blog for a few weeks, but where you are looks like somewhere I would love to be – even in sixty degree weather. 🙂
